A minor problem with stock ...

I managed to visit my local branch of Hobbycraft yesterday, and I had a small list of things that I needed to buy in order to continue with my model Ironclad building programme. Unfortunately the branch did not have everything that I wanted to buy in stock ... and so I will have to try to go to the Maidstone branch next weekend to see if they have what I need.

In the meantime I have been working on some other ship designs, and have begun to make a few prototypes of smaller vessels for the late nineteenth century. If they turn out to be acceptable, then I will write a blog entry about them; if they don't, then they will be consigned to the modelling rubbish bin.

Time will tell what their fate will be.

  1. Hi Bob,

    That is frustrating - I was pretty lucky with my own visit this weekend although I did manage to forget one item! Following on from the ubiquitous casemate ironclad and monitor do you have any plans for something like a Cairo class gunboat?

    All the best,

    DC

  2. David Crook,

    It is one of the things that I have in mind to build ... time permitting!

    All the best,

    Bob

  3. Very much a case of "We want eight but we'll have to wait"

  4. Tim Gow,

    Very true. Hopefully a trip to Maidstone (the next nearest branch of Hobbycraft) will solve the problem. if not ... well there is always the Internet!

    All the best,

    Bob
