Our 1/700 HMS Glamorgan kit is now in the early stages of production and will be available later this year all being well. This is a resin kit with photoetch and decals for Glamorgan as she was in the Falklands conflict, 1982. The complex seaslug launcher and smaller seacat missiles will be one piece, 3d printed parts.

All of our kits will in future be available only as limited editions, pre-order will be available to reserve a kit, this is intended to be available next month.

Not one single comment and a little over 100 views, really?

Hmm, that is strange, because this is really an impressive kit!

Myself, I am a little annoyed, because I had built the Skytrex kit of Glamorgan. This one will be much more detailed and complete!

Mike, that looks to be a lovely looking kit, I hope it does well for you!

If it is up to your HMS Alynbank (which I have bought from you), it will be an absolute corker!

Best of luck with this project,

Ray

Hi Mike!

I was always interested in your River class frigates. Your pics on your site show some beautiful attention to detail.
This latest, HMS Glamorgan looks great. Wish I was an accomplished PE user. Pretty sure I would make a mess out of your antenna assemblies but I would love to try.
I will keep your Starling models in mind. If another US PPP(stimuls) package comes along, I will be in touch.


Thanks for keeping us updated. Don't sweat the "views vs posts". It been a tough year. Especially for me as I am in Philadelphia. (That's an Inside joke among Americans about Philly... let me know if you need a hint as it can be construed to be Political.)

I have been waiting on a County DDG for years - the kit looks great so far and I will most likely grab one!

I'm looking forward to it.

I got started with "serious" modeling with an Airfix Devonshire kit in 1970 or so and it will be fun to have a high-quality kit of that class.

Very nice! I modelled her from the Airfix kit just this year. Yours is much sharper...
