I've got this little beauty and it's going to be part of the Atlantic convoy dio for Telford. We've agreed I would do the camo version - result!

I shall be starting soon but can't wait to get this one in the water!

Bravo, Harry and Battle Fleet Models.

While I haven't had the chance to build one of Harry's kits, the two I have are some of the best quality resin kits I've seen.

Excellent review Mark
It seems that Harry has been working hard to make his already excellent models into amazing ones!
I really like the amount of detail that it was placed on a relatively small ship, and the crispness of the resin casted parts. Bravo Zulu Harry

I think that I can speak for my mates and say it's our pleasure...all that it takes is to get one of your kits, to really understand what a quality, unique casting should be like.

Hi All,

I have received ships decals today. 1/700.
Anyone who bought a Tug or any other ship from me that would like a set of decals, drop me an email with your address and I will send you a set.

BTW, all of my kit from now on will come with a set of decals.

Great news, for sure!
