I've accumulated too much R/C naval combat stuff and need to get rid of the "clutter" in the basement as Kim describes it. It does take up far too much space - getting rid of it will let me add a wargaming table, which is my main hobby interest now. For sale: IJN Ibuki - hypothetical CVL nearly complete by end of WWII and built for Treaty combat. Also suitable as an IRCWCC convoy ship. Uses one of Ralph Coles Mogami hulls but I reworked the hull in fiberglass to produce Ibuki's odd bulges. Has a very detailed 1/144 plastic flight deck protected along the edges by thick styrene. The large sponson for the island hs been moulded on and the detailed forecastle finished. Props and rudders are installed but no other 'guts'. It's available with a set of highly detailed (and correct) Japanese naval aircraft for display, which originally cost $12-15 each. Many photos in the build section of R/C Naval Combat up to end of current construction. $150 plus shipping. HMS Hood - very well known to NABS members and was in New Brunswick for a few years as a non-combat model. Passed through a few hands before I bought it back and has a new CO2 system installed but BB cannons have not been reinstalled. Cost me $850 to buy back but I'll sell it for less (plus shipping). A very accurately built superstructure based on Hood on sea trials in 1920 and from plans in Anatomy of the Ship: HMS Hood. That book also available along with a big (free) oak-framed b&w photo of Hood in the 1930's. Lost it's main topmast and one large deck ventilator while away - easily replacable. HMS/HMAS Albatross hull. Aussie, then RN seaplane carrier with a beautiful bulged hull, based on the RAN offical plans. Suitable for a convoy ship in its final role as a repair ship and also as a Class 1 IRCWCC combatant as the seaplane carrier. Check out photos of the 1/1250 scale Neptun model on their website. $80 plus shipping. I have the mould and can make more if required. I-400 - upper and lower hull, conning tower and large hangar moulded in fiberglass, plus plans for the deepened hull plan to improve stability. $115 plus shipping. HMS Vanguard - probably my best hull for R/C naval combat (mould sold to Strike Models). This is an extra thick hull due to the heavy damage Battlers Connection and Swampworks hulls (and my thicker ones too!) were taking from Battlers cannons in the NABS Yamato and Mushashi. Multiple layers of fiberglass matt totalling 3/16" - 1/4" thick in 'window' areas. Has several tranverse 3/16" brass rods installed holding sides at correct beam along length, and a fiberglass deck with moulded in hatch aperatures for 1/8" thick lexan (recommended) or plexiglass hatches. Also has a set of Grey Wolf Vanguard turrets and top and sideview 1/144 scale plan. $200 plus shipping. Contact me if interested. Preference to OAF, NABS and other Canadian battlers initially before general posting.
