Another role for HMS Terror

Here is HMS Terror in her proposed role as a support ship for Operation Hush, which was the plan to land a British division on the Belgian coast in 1917. The monitors are from Navwar. The pontoon is scratch-built. The pontoons were designed to carry tanks, artillery, and infantry with their support weapons.

HMS Swiftsure and friend

A photo of the Navis-Neptune model HMS Swiftsure, accompanied by an Heroics and Ros Short seaplane here.

Canonnière fluviale

Another excellent model from PT Dockyard. It is une canonnière fluviale, which was a river gunboat built by the French in the Great War. These boats served in batteries that were used in the Battles of the Somme and Verdun for example.

Fokker triplane

And a Fokker triplane to keep the Roland company. As you can see, not the typical all-red of der Rote Baron but a distinctive colouring nonetheless.

Roland CII

Also known as der Walfisch (the whale) in German, the Roland CII was a reconnaissance aircraft. The fuselage was constructed in a similar way to the WW2 Mosquito, with layers of plywood.

The model is from Heroics and Ros. It is overflying a cork tile - best I could do on the day.
