Hi,

Can anyone help with photos of the Thornycroft 73ft 9in MTB's 49-56.

I will be building a 1:24th scale model soon, I have two plans to work from but not much in the way of photo detail.

See my website for more details

Hi all!

Photos of my new project can be seen on the website (www.hslmouldings.co.uk), I have yet to get the new moulding for the wheelhouse. I have started to produce the fittings for this 1:24th scale model of the Little seen Thornycroft Motor Torpedo Boat.

Any question please contact me through the website!

Hi all!

Hope you all had a good Christmas Holiday!


Need a little help on this MTB.

Can anyone help with the large area at the back of the open bridge!
It sits between the torpedo tubes.

Does any know how high this is off the deck level?
I have two plans to work from, but they dont show how high this area is off the deck if it is ment to be!

Just to keep you upto date I hve made good progress with the fittings for this model, see my website.

If you can send me your photos of your model, I would be most grateful!


thank you in advance

Christopher

Hi Guys

Just a few photos to show you how far I have got with the model of MTB49
















The wheelhouse in the above photo is NOt being used on this model!

All new fittings are being made for this model that will include air vent with boxes, all hatches, torpedo tube rails with holes and other deck and wheelhouse fittings.

The second hull is almost complete fto send to the GRP moulders for the female mould!.

Please contact me if your are interested in this model!

regards

Chris

Hi Chris

I confirm I will definately build one of these gorgeous models, thanks for all your efforts at getting it onto the market (which has not seen anything as fresh as this for ages).
