G'day MM,

Hey, thanks very much for that - much appreciated - there is certainly nothing like that with this one - I bought it on Ebay from a dealer I have used in the past - maybe they didn't pack one in it?

Anyway, thanks again - I'll cut and paste and print that out.

cheers,

bj

You're welcome, bj. On second thought I think the pictures are not good enough. Check back in 4-5 days, I'll replace them with scanned ones, life-size
which you'll be able to read all the part numbers. I'm having 3 days off my work and my scanner is at my office.

๊Update: I've replaced the pictures today (Feb 1). Have fun! :wave_1:

Beautiful job, but the ship depicts the wrong lifeboat. The majority of FFG's had Motor Whaleboats. This model correctly depicts the trackway boat davit but features a pontoon type RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) which is deployed with a Slewing arm type davit.

Very nice! I've always been curious how people get the "smoky" appearance on the hull. It appears as though it has two different shades. Anyway congratulation on a fine looking ship.

looks good other than the stacks being reversed. I'm working on a Perry class also and have got PE sets from WEM, Yankee and MK1 plus some resin bits from Yankee. I'll post pics soon I hope.

I've almost finished my model of the ship, it is very detailed.
I want to make high-quality photos that you could see the smallest details.

I may be torched for this, but here goes as the Perry class is one of my favorite ship classes: Whoever built this model did a very poor job. Hate to say it, but that is for sure and for certain. And if the owner paid someone to build this, then go demand a refund. Why? The main stack is reversed - that has been noted - and the RIB is incorrect, especially for a short hull Perry. It should be, as someone mentioned, a 26' whaleboat. Those are huge mistakes. The US flag is incorrectly displayed on the mast. And no modern US ship should have a smokey weathering like that. I know it looks dirty and brings out the detail, but it is all wrong. Any US Captain who allowed his ship to be that dirty - except in a wartime environment - would be court-martialled and relieved. I know it is popular to show ships in extreme states of weathering, but that is just not how they look, especially the superstructure. It is always, clean it, scrape it, and paint it. And then paint it again in the modern Navy. If you want to weather the superstructure correctly, use a pin wash and highlight the piping and ladders, but don't glop on a smokey paint spray. Rant done.
