Mr. Gray from Canada, has sent us some Photo's of his Bild, based on our model of HMS Compass Rose

Quote
Reading about the sinking of the Spikenard, there was a merchant marine style raft on board and there were gas drums lashed to the base of the mast. My model has incorporated these additions.
Spikenard, being one of the earliest corvettes launched, had a short forecastle and the superstructure was quite different than that of the kit of Compass Rose. You will note several other differences between the two ships. I see the advantages of making a model from Deans Marine because the modeller can adjust the model into what a particular ship of that class looked like at some instant of time.

You might like to know about the Spikenard and why I made a model of her. It is explained in the article that I wrote:

The Trumpeter 1/200 scale ships are taking the model world by storm with the incredible detail on the mouldings and the brass etched parts. Large enough for radio control, but the thought of purchasing one of these expensive kits, cutting and chopping the hull around, and then trying to find the necessary working parts that would keep the scale appearance some find very risky and some insurmountable.

The hull has brass bilge keels and a sheet of lead below the hull. The lead sheet is the fibee glassed and smooth off. The reason for fitting the lead below the hull helps maintain stability in long thin hulls.
