Final Build dari Model Kit HMS Valiant 1939 oleh Bob Cicconi

The Trumpeter HMS Valiant 1939. It pretty much out of the box, but the creator used brass barrels, brass cross yards, WEM PE set for the Queen Elizabeth class that included the pom poms and .50 cal MGs. The creator grabbed a Swordfish from the Flyhawk Hermes kit and modified it to be a floatplane. Lifecolor paint and stretched sprue rigging completed the model. Special thanks to Tim Stoneman for his help in making the kit accurate for the 1939 period, as the kit has some glitches in the AA suite and the wrong scout plane. Thanks also to Garth Connelly for helping, with Tim, to help the creator choose the correct radar for 1939. That was also included in the excellent WEM detail set.

Secara keseluruhan, model ini sangat terlihat hebat! detail pada deck sangat terlihat jelas dan rapih bahkan untuk mata seorang pemula. tingkat kedetailan pada setiap komponen kapal sangat menarik untuk dilihat. HMS Valiant ini sangat terasa hidup dan siap bertempur
