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 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.

Happy to announce a set of enclosed bridges for Baltimore class heavy cruiser USS Los Angeles CA-135 as the ship appeared circa 1957-1959 is now available in 1/700 scale.

It was during this time that the ship carried three SSM-N-8 Regulus missiles.

The model includes a complete set of Mk.34, Mk.37 and Mk.56 fire control directors and Mk.13 radar antennas, enough for both the forward and aft superstructure.

Turrets and a nameplate are also available.

Thanks, fellas!

New nameplates include:
- several US Navy destroyers
- all completed Italian Capitani Romani class light cruisers with additional nameplates for those ships of the class in French service with their French names. This class was exceptionally fast, over 40 knots.

Nameplates for Russian subjects in Cyrillic have been modified to include a more traditional Russian font.


Basic nameplate size is 7 cm (~2.75 inches) to complement 1/700 scale ship models. Nameplates can be enlarged upon request to better complement models in larger scales.

Steve,
Understand completely your decision to decline any more requests, but would it be possible to get an update on your "to be developed" project list? Some of us have future builds in mind and it would help tremendously if we knew what goodies might be coming down the Model Monkey slipways to prevent scratchbuilding regrets!

Dave

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your interest and patronage!

Except for a few projects already announced, the project list is now "close-hold" and will not be made public. This is to help preclude competitors from preempting products in research and design, then quickly releasing identical products spoiling the market and wasting significant efforts and monies spent, as has happened.

I do regret any disappointment and inconvenience this causes modelers.

I will confirm two soon-to-be-released products, hopefully this month or next (no promises), a set of RMS Titanic funnels in 1/350 and 1/400 scales, and a bridge for USS Salem in 1/350 scale, not necessarily in that order. Renderings of one of the funnels appear below at about 80% complete. Some of what you see will change.

There will be more nameplates, too.

For those who haven't already done so, please consider subscribing to Model-Monkey.com at the bottom of the catalog's main webpage. Subscribers receive new product announcements via email, about once per month or so - no spam.

I regret to say that other than custom text on nameplates, I no longer accept requests for new research and design projects, free or commissioned. Other vendors may accept your request. You can reach many on Shapeways' 3D design request board, link: https://www.shapeways.com/forum/f/3d-de ... quests.92/

Hope this helps, thanks again and best wishes!

The Japanese 40 mm/62 is the gun called 2-pdr. Mark II (PomPom) by the British.

Niko Model offers one as Japanese version:
http://www.nikomodel.pl/index.php/en/resin-kits/accessories-en/kits-1-700-en/item/japanese-40mm-single-aa-gun

But I am sure there are better parts for the British available.

Guest, don't count on that as appears not many made of the actual gun & was in service about 10yrs as was replaced by the 25mm gun starting in 1935.

It will be a little while before both the Belfast compass platform and the Vickers weapons are ready. Thanks for your patience!

In the mean time, several new nameplates for modern PLAN (Chinese navy) Type 052B, 052C and 052D class destroyers are now available. Some examples are shown below. And a recent printing, the 1/700 scale USS Arizona Memorial, follows.

Good news, Vickers are in the queue
and research for them is complete. It will be a while before I can get to them. The queue is very full.

In other news, nameplates for all Derfflinger class battlecruisers have been added to the catalog, with names in Fette deutsche Shrift font for a traditional look.
