County (Devonshire) Class 1960

Postby countyclass » 06 Mar 2010 04:31

Hi. Has anyone built a (1960) County (Devonshire) class destroyer eg HMS Glamorgan in 1:72 scale as I am unsure if one has ever been built? Any info greatly appreciated! Thanks. AL.

There is some movement towards a County class, a plug for a County class hull is under construction (very much a part time process) by several members.

It will be interesting to see one on the water but they were big bastards, and the 1:72 version will be as well.

Probably 2-3 years away before one is completed.

Nice shots on your Photobucket account, what scale is the Type 22?

Allan Pew has had the 1/72 scale county class hull plus some decks etc available for 2 > 3 years now.

Kim White AKA Kim The County Man is well under way with his one.

Dave Rowland & my one is still sitting up on a shelf in my garage.

Hi all,
am just learning how to navigate around the website and forums. Yes, I am doing HMS Glamorgan. Will try to post something in the "under construction" section.
