Re: HDML 1321

Thanks Brian, below is the story behind your post and the reasons why this very important part of Aussie military history. The missing words in your post are 'crowd funding'. This ‘little ship’ must be saved, WHY? This remarkable vessel, HDML 1321 performed sterling work with the coastwatcher networ...

Re: New Vosper MTB model

Greetings all from 'way downunder', I thought now is the right time to update you to the excellent range of 1/72nd scale models under the ‘Coastal Craft’ label. These kits are produced in the UK since 2013 and are available direct. I have two (as yet unbuilt) kits, the Vosper ‘234’ boat and MGB 77 a...

Re: Roger's Little Ships

Hello again, It appears I've been a bit of a dill and not posted a piccy of the very first model I finished, the HDML 1285. I should remind you too that these models are all 1/144th scale so are a little small perhaps but I'm really happy with the way they are looking. HDML 1285-16.JPG Still to come...

Re: Roger's Little Ships

Hello everyone,

I've been a tad remiss in keeping you up-to-date with progress on models I've completed, so here are a couple more.

Below is my Vosper MTB 234.

Then we have the Fairmile A class ML 103.

Re: Mystery Vosper??

Thanks 'Admin', Interesting response which is certainly food for thought. It's tricky re the radar given we can't see the top of the mast but it looks to me like there could be an extension? but of course not sure. That's interesting too re the torpedo tube removal on most of 24th Flotilla's boats, ...

Mystery Vosper??

Hello everyone, The photo below shows a Vosper MTB somewhere in the Adriatic area during WW2 and that is all the info I have, so I'm asking does anyone know which MTB this is and perhaps when the photo was taken? I got the photo off the PT Dockyard website and no Dave does not have any info at all. ...

Looking for John Elsy, modeller.

Hello from way ‘downunder’, I am trying to re-establish contact with John Elsy, the builder of the attached model of Fairmile B class ML 268, one of the ill-fated motor launches from Op Chariot, the raid on St Nazaire, 28 March 1942. I too am building a model of another of the ‘Chariot’ ML’s, mine b...

Re: ML 269

Hello Terry, I've just forwarded this thread onto Ken Joyce and I'm positive he'll get in touch if he hasn't already done so. Nice photo's of '269' as well, one day I plan to do a model of '269'. All the models I've done/doing of Fairmile B's have all been quite different, especially weapons fits an...

Re: ML 351 and 357

Hi Michael, Have sent you a 'pm' as I have a friend here in Oz who's late father was on 357 from Nov 43 to Oct 45, plus I know of a chap in Sydney who also served on her for a time. You might also like to know that '357' is still afloat in the UK. Cheers, Roger. "Roger's Little Ships". Modelling All...

Re: ML 220 1st ML Flotilla

Thanks 'cdsc123', Nice photo of '220', thankyou for sharing it with us. According to 'Allied Coastal Forces vol I' by John Lambert & Al Ross the only info about her post war is "ML2220; RNVR 12.47; sold 20.8.56" so your little snippet of info could add to that and who knows what other info may come ...
