New model – HMS “Warrior”

I’ve got a new project for the winter. Model Boats magazine has asked me to do a kit review of the Billings (Denmark) kit of HMS “Warrior”, the first ironclad built 1860. 

The kit arrived last week, and its a big one, it should take me about five months.  I will photograpgh every stage of the construction and write copy for articles for Model Boats.

I reckon to run it to three articles in successive issues. It will appear in the Model Making section here.
