Help needed. I have just completed a scratch built model of HMS Protector (our current ice patrol ship).
When I started over two years ago I envisioned that it might be the last model I would build – I started my first detailed scratch built Ton class minesweeper in 1956. However having been given a 3D printer for my eightieth, part way through the build, i have enjoyed the work and decided I would try another. Searching for this next model gave me the desire to build HMS Forth, a river class OPV that is on long term secondment to the Falklands. It of much the same l.o.l. hence, at the same scale, I could run them both at the same time (from one transmitter). I currently run a 1:45 ton class with a 1:32 Gay class patrol boat, doesn’t look too stupid but not ideal.
Problem. There are plenty of photos of river class ships on the net, from which I can scale the superstructure, but I have not been able to find any of the hull, which looks as if it has an interesting shape above and below the waterline.
Any source ideas would be welcome.
