Lerwick recognition model

This sub-forum is for the dedicated solid wood modelers: this is the traditional 'older' method that existed prior to the plastic kit genre. Solid wood carving methods date back to World War One and in the hands of a skilled craftsman a superb model can result. It is the ultimate scratchbuild.

Lerwick recognition model

Here is a Lerwick I made from the official U.S. Navy WWII-era ID model plans. The scale is 1:72. When I shot this photo the spinners were not applied yet, but otherwise it is finished and ready to hang from the ceiling.

Hi Kev,

Er, well, er, um Yes he did. Unfortunately, I deleted it by accident....!

Mind you we have the space for it and the place for it.................and I promise not to fiddle late at night!

I would really love to read the whole thing; I never got to finish it. :oops:

Mind you, no one else did either....................

So, please up-load it again!
Best Regards,

Hello!
solidmodeler: good work! I observe this thread with interest.
I don`t know do you have pictures from the thread that disappeared. In my documentation about Lerwick I found three your pictures.

Bryan, I managed to save most the thread before it disappeared. I decided to re-organize it a little and will post it again soon. I am glad you made a new category for wood models as there are a lot of things that will fit in here.

Thanks Krzychu, I had lost one of those pictures!

Hi Solidmodeler, thanks for this - I'm well relieved, I can tell you!

Use the new sub-forum as you wish - it's all yours!

Cheers,
