Hai fellow modellers,

I have been following this forum for some time now. I am very pleased and enthusiastic over this forum.
:newbie: I have seen many new things and method’s I sure can use now or in the future. :thumbs_up_1:

I am building now the Multi purpose Frigate of the Karel Doorman Class of the Dutch Navy. :smallsmile:

This is my second resin ship and I got I of a friend who was already starting painting the bottom and then stopped of the complexity of the building with resin.

So I sanded the bottom and made some corrections to the rudders and propulsion. And I started with the hangar bay and the mast.

So please give you comments during the building of my ship. :wave_1:

Looks very good! Keep the images coming, those MP frigates are sharp-looking ships.

Too bad MW doesn't do anything in 1:700, my scale.

Here is a photo I think you will find useful. It is the forecastle of H.S. ELLI, Hellenic Navy "S" class frigate which is identical with this class of frigates...

Hi ,

don't think so , the "S" frigates are/were completely different than the "M" frigates

Regards ,

Laurent

You are right, but I do not think the forecastle arrangement will have many differences...

Cool, finally somebody is building something Dutch. I'd love to see more kits of the Dutch Navy since they have some really attractive and powerful ships. Unfortunately only few kits (and in the WRONG scale e.g. 1/350) are out there. M-class is good for the Belgians, Portuguese and Chiliean builders too!

The Dutch Navy operated 6 Cannon-class DE's up to the 1960's, classified as frigates. It's very easy to convert Pitroad's 1:700 Cannon-class to a Dutch DE, in fact they even supply the Dutch flags (and many others) on the decal sheet. Here's some progress on Hr.Ms. Van Amstel:

Now there are some more 1/700 kits of Dutch frigates available.

De Zeven Provinciën (LCF) class

1/700 by Dodo Models:

http://www.modellmarine.de/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=5013:2017-10-11-05-43-56&catid=518:dodo-models

The class will be also available in 1/350 again by Naval Models.
