1/400 Heller HMAS Melbourne

Gallery Article by Alfred Calleja on July 15 2019

 

      

This is my converted model kit of HMAS Melbourne.  Seeing that there is no kit for the Melbourne I converted the Heller 1/400 scale Arromanches kit.  I scratch made most of the Aircraft and used the 350 scale Seakings.  I scratch made the Angled flight deck, the Island and all the Cranes and Masts.  

I made this in the mid 1980s when there was no Internet or 3D printers to help me, all I had for research were a couple of photos.
