Model Description


16/02/2022 from Germany

My latest build – a conversion of Atlantic Models HMS Rothesay to HMAS Yarra DE45.

I used the resin hull and funnel block from the kit and then scratch built a new foremast and aft deckhouse.

The twin 4.5” Mk6 turret, the bridge, the SeaCat launcher, the Ikara launcher, the Mk22 gun director, and most of the deck fittings are all 3D printed courtesy of Bogeys Bits on Shapeways.

The kit PE was mostly used but there were also some generic PE railings from White Ensign.

Paint is Tamiya AS-18 IJA Light Grey, XF-19 Haze Grey, and XF-1 Matt Black,

Decals are from the kit but mostly from my spares box !

Weathering is done using AK Interactive washes.
