When I started this hobby for real one would ‘write’ a ‘letter’ to Caroline and Dave Carter to enquire about a kit, on receiving the answer+catalogue write another letter to order and write a written ‘bank transfer’ to pay for the kit. After a number of weeks one would receive the package and hope that the quality of the kit was any good. One would also have reviews in a paper magazine, Plastic Ship Modeler. Ignoring those reviews would have its consequences. The quality of a certain 1/700 chinese battleship kit got me into scratchbuiling late 19th century ships.
I was reminded of this previous century situation when borders started to close 2 months ago and international mail services started to become erratic and sometime disappear. So I was pleasantly surprised when a Kombrig 1/700 Beagle showed up in my mailbox two weeks ago. As I have not seen any of the new Kombrig destroyer kits built on this site I decided to do one. The kit is really excellent. The only things I changed were substituting WEM davits for the somewhat crude Kombrig examples and adding a gun shield for the 4 inch gun. I chose to build HMS Foxhound as she was the only one of the Clydebank subgroup that remained in Mediterranean grey for the early Gallipoli campaign.

And after this minor distraction its back to my emotional support bulk carrier.
