Stretch Corvette - HMS Nomad
« on: January 14, 2017, 04:16:58 am »
Having just made a 1/72 corvette I noted that the hull construction lends itself to being lengthened...

Watch this space .

And here I thought you stretched a Chevy Corvette into a Nomad.  :wacko:

I was thinking along similar lines too.  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

If you stretch a corvette, you might just end up with a frigate... 😉

That's very nice  but I was thinking more inspired by Hms Nith

The Flower-class was itself a stretch of a whale-killer, so a further stretch isn't too outré.

Are you considering in place of or supplemental to the Castle-class?

I guess it would be supplemental . My initial  vision is  sort of Black Swan Class light . So maybe Black Cygnet class. It will involve  2 x 4.7 inch singles and a quad bofors .
