A quick blog entry tonight as I'm in "Fawlty Towers" in Bournemouth after the "Beachhead" wargames show at the BIC (more onews this in a blog entry next week). Suffice to say I've finished the latest and probably last model ships in my 1/1200 Cod War collection, HMS Mermaid.
The model is a resin kit from Mountford - the kit actually comprises a one piece resin hull/superstructure, with a white metal mast and 4" gun mount. Detail is good although smoothed off in some areas and the anchor detail is completely wrong. It's not a cheap model either, maybe they've taken pricing guidance from Games Workshop :)
That said it is a decent model of an unusual subject and paints up nicely. So a worthy addition to my Cod War fleets.
