Fleetscale builds the highest quality Semi- Kits, fittings and more – But what does this mean?
Where do I start?
Fleetscale believes in some simple laws of model warship modelling: Research , Practice & Patience, Never give in!
Because of the quality and standard of what we produce we always advise that you need some experience in modelling to do a model warship of these scales.
We recommend our semi kits as good starting point, or atleast plans with a hull. Do keep in mind, some ships require more work then others and some consume more time, space and money then others. As ever, research is vital to success. Our two semi-kit’s that have the least to ‘do’ are the 1/72nd Type 22 Semi kit or the 1/72nd Type 45 Semi kit.
Any questions about starting out, feel free give us a call.
What are Semi Kits?
Semi-Kits are slightly different to your average modellers kit. It is not the same as popping down to your local store to buy a scale model produced by another manufacturer already painted or on sprues to put together.
Semi Kits enable modellers to build models to the highest level of accuracy with maximum flexibility. FleetScale provides the means for the modeller to have a solid starting point their major project of building a scale model boat.
The Power of greater choice
Where appropriate, the hulls are fully detailed, with the plating, riveting and other surface markings, moulded into the hull. On some models we provide superstructures, decks and fittings for certain models that reflect certain plans but ultimately the choice is yours. Theirs no instructions and the projects go far beyond the simplicity of “sticking it together”. Modellers have to embark on much research and development of skills, over a period of time.
Forget the Manual, its all yours:
We don’t provide manuals or guides on how you build your model, just alike the real world naval architects and shipyards, its your choice from which tool and adhesive to use,where to brace & strengthen, propulsion,design, paint scheme and more.
