Model Monkey customers are invited to submit "hero shot" photos of your modeling art.

An email contact link can be found on the bottom of any Model Monkey catalog webpage (click here).

Please state that you are giving your permission to have your photos publicly displayed.

For reasons of practicality, we can't post every photo submitted of every model, but we'd like to share more photos than we now have. We can post a link to build threads of your model on other modeling sites like Modelwarships.com in addition to your photo, or in lieu of a photo. Please send the link you would like us to use.

Cheers!
Steve Larsen

Thanks, Martin!

I'm not sure about 1/700 scale. The exterior piping and whistles are certain to be too fragile in 1/700 scale to survive the printing and cleaning process. But I could probably offer the funnels with the piping omitted and let the modeler use the plastic kit's parts.

The 1/350 set is now available. Below are photos of the set altogether and Funnel 3 and Funnel 4.

Yes, will be re-scaling to them to 1/400, too, and will enlarge them to 1/200. Can't say for sure when that will happen but soon.

And, of course, nameplates are available now for all ships of the class.

Good news, test prints for 1/350 scale RMS Titanic Funnels No. 1 and No. 2 are complete and successful. Funnels 3 and 4 are waiting their turn in the printer between filling orders. This is how the models look right out of the printer, no cleaning, painting or other preparation.

The design for RMS Titanic funnels in 1/350 scale is nearly complete. The models are in the queue for test-printing this weekend. Renderings for Funnel No.1 appear below. Each funnel is uniquely angled at the bottom to account for deck shear so that each is the correct height and achieves a rake of 9.46 degrees (2 inches aft for every 12 inches in height). Features:
- full rivet detailing
- painter's sheaves
- shroud brackets (cable stay attachment points)
- five types of external water and steam pipes correct for Titanic (Olympic's funnel piping was different - some kits in various scales mistakenly depict Olympic's steam loops and tank overflow piping detail rather than Titanic's):
1. large boiler steam escape vents, 17" scale diameter forward and 15" scale diameter aft
2. whistle steam supply pipes
3. thick steam loops
4. single-pipe P-shaped tank air vent/overflows
5. double-pipe P-shaped tank air vent/overflows

The whistle service platform and ladder have been omitted in favor of photo-etch available from photo-etch vendors.

New nameplates include several Danish corvettes and frigates. Absalon and Esbern Snare are available for both their logistic support ship designation and their ASW frigate designation.
- Absalon F341
- Absalon L16

Features:

- 4-part kit.
- Overall dimensions and features of this design are based on official US Navy Booklet of General Plans (BoGP) drawings of sistership USS Newport News CA-148 adjusted to match high-resolution photographs of museum ship USS Salem CA-139 and to fit the Very Fire 1/350 scale kits.
- Open bridge windows.
- Accurately shaped decks and platforms with below-deck supporting structure.  The length of the uppermost deck and deckhouse matches BoGP drawings. It is accurately shorter than the Very Fire kit's parts.
- Splinter shielding configuration accurate for 1950s.  The Very Fire kits' splinter shielding is accurate for the ships' as-built, late 1940s appearance.
- Accurately shaped Mk.37 fire control director tower of the correct height, with aft locker and access door, and battle lookout slits with shades.  The Very Fire kits' tower is an inaccurately-shaped simple cylinder, is too tall, and has no detailing.
- Accurately shaped (semi-circular) and fully instrumented pilot house forward armored bulkhead with open battle lookouts and coverings in the lowered position.  The Very Fire kits' pilot house and flag bridge forward bulkheads are inaccurately flat with no detailing.  The Very Fire kit's navigation bridge pilot house sides are inaccurately shaped.
- Fully instrumented navigation bridge and flag bridge interior bulkheads including chart tables, with overhead support detailing, all consistent with photographs of the actual ship's bridge interior.
- Accurately shaped navigation bridge overhead cover.  The Very Fire kit's cover extends too far to the rear covering too many windows.  The aft-most windows on the real ship's navigation bridge were not covered.
- Accurately positioned deck openings for inclined ladders.  The Very Fire kit's openings are too far forward.
- Open venturi (wind deflector) with the correct number of baffles.  The Very Fire kit's venturi is solid with too many baffles.
- Other features included in this model but omitted from the Very Fire kits:
1. Integrated peloruses on the navigation bridge and flag bridge, two on each deck, of the correct configuration.
2. Accurately configured doors and portholes on the aft side of the deckhouses.
3. Doors of two different configurations, rapid-opening on deck house sides, and fully dogged on the aft end of the deckhouses.  The Very Fire kit's doors are of an inaccurate configuration for Salem.
4. Accurate absence of rigols ("eyebrows") above portholes.  The real ship did not have them on the bridge bulkheads.  The Very Fire kits bridge parts inaccurately include them.
5. Starboard side, aft, bridge urinal station with door.
6. Splinter shielding interior reinforcing ribs.
7. Port and starboard sidelights with reflecting plates.
8. Starboard side square antenna trunk with insulator on top.
9. Outriggers for mast stays.

The designs for 1/350 scale RMS Titanic funnels and a 1/350 scale bridge for Des Moines class heavy cruiser USS Salem CA-139 are nearing completion.

In the mean time, new nameplates for early US battleships and two more nameplates for Flower class corvettes have been added to the catalog.

Thanks, Martin!

Happy to announce some new nameplates:

- all three Indiana-class battleships, USS Indiana BB-1, USS Massachusetts, BB-2 and USS Oregon BB-3, 10 cm length to complement your 1/225 scale Glencoe USS Oregon kit

- Shimakaze 島風, suitable for both the exceptionally fast World War Two-era IJN destroyer (47 knots!) or modern JMSDF Hatakaze-class destroyer. It's a large plate, 10 cm, to complement 1/350 scale kits (Fujimi, Hasegawa, etc.) and 1/200 scale kits (Timo's Model World multi-media kit). 5"/54 cal. single-dome "Frog-Eye" mounts are available, too, for Hatakaze class ships, etc.

- Nanchang 南昌, first PLAN Type 055 stealth guided missile destroyer (filling a role roughly similar to a Ticonderoga-class cruiser)

- three more PLAN Type 052D guided missile destroyer 10 cm-length nameplates, Hefei 合肥, Xining 西宁, and Yinchuan 银川, bringing the total of Type 052D nameplates to six ships of the class (roughly similar to an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer)

- three Royal Navy World War Two-era M-class destroyers including one in Polish Navy service, HMS Musketeer, HMS Milne and ORP Orkan

Thanks so much, Maxim!

A valued customer, James Strauss, sent some photos of his recently completed 1/700 scale USS Oklahoma BB-37 and USS St Paul CA-73 models. His Okie features Model Monkey 14"/45 turrets and Mk.19 directors. His St. Paul features a Model Monkey forward superstructure, 8"/55 turrets, 3"/50 tubs, and Mk.34, Mk.37 and Mk.56 fire control directors. Another valued customer, our own Martin Quinn, sent photos of his 1/350 scale Revell Tirpitz, featuring Model Monkey turrets all around.
