hi every body!

I am a pacific war fan and have more IJN ships ,especially in aux. ship

nowadays , I engaged in building HMS ships , I would like to make HMS UNICORN and PIONEER repair ships

Image

I collect this photos from net and need more 3D drawings to know precise upper structure of those 'WARE HOUSE"

Image

and I want to know the arment allocation of the HMS UNICORN , because some data tells that UNICORN has 3 x 4pompom and some tell 4 x 4 pompom

any master knows about this two ships?


thank you very much !!!

We also now have a 3D-printed 1/700 HMS Unicorn available from the Shapeways vendor COB Constructs and Miniatures:

HMS Unicorn in 1/700

While some will probably note errors in this version as what happened with other 1/700 models from this vendor, it is still much cheaper (US $78) than the resin 1/700 HMS Unicorn kit from HP models (over US $150 on Ebay).

Perhaps this vendor will further modify this template in order to make a 3D-printed 1/700 Colossus or Majestic class light carrier model that the Unicorn is based on.

Unicorn had nothing to do with the later Colossus/Majestic classes. Perseus and Pioneer, however, did.

Thread age doesn't matter in CASF, David. The purpose of threads in this section is to maintain a long-term archive dedicated to specific ship classes.

Haijun, HMS Unicorn predates the Colossus & Majestic classes by 3yrs.
