HMS Troutbridge

Well it’s took me best part of a week to build it  no fault of design,  goes together very well and any problems were more to me being caggy handed than the model itself.

Now for those not in the Know HMS Troutbridge was the long suffering near Indestructible Destroyer Escort in the Long Running Radio Comedy ‘ The Navy Lark, which had as members of its cast 3rd Doctor Who John Pertwee, Leslie Phillips,  and in the early series Ronnie Barker. The ship was famous for its many collisions with Docks , other ships etc, and never seemed to take any damage whilst nigh on wrecking everything it hit. Hence the crest above  and the motto ‘Everybody Down’.

I have a fair few of the series on Amazon,  and still like to listen to episodes over Sunday Lunch, the time it was traditionally broadcast.

So when I came to give my Sarrisma Precision’s Frigate it was the obvious name.

Now as previously stated, I will not be doing rigging , as it will get in way of figure placement,  and in this case the model is modular to ease both storage, transport and play. ( Particularly of want to use it foe Silver Bayonet) . It is already looking like the easiest ship to transport to Asgard. As the Masts come of rigging it would be bloody silly.

If I had an RPG group currently playing and they were doing ship story I’d be buying that kit!

I may still snag it as I do plan to get a group together to run an 1800’s RPG ‘Beat to Quarters’.

Looks like a really good setup.
