If only everything in life was as reliable as a V/W

The 'V' and 'W' Class destroyers were produced in some profusion during the latter half of the Great War, and many continued in service with the Royal Navy during WW2.  The class set the template for inter-war destroyer designs.  Which is why I felt the need to own six of them.   They are MY castings with the usual florist wire masts and drybrush over black paintwork.
The title of the post?  Try this for size.

From sinking subs to destroyer escort they did everything the Admiralty asked of them (against more ably equipped opponents)

My favourite destroyers. The Australian Navy had a fair few called the Scrap Iron Flotilla.

Do you have any photos of the master which the mold was made form? I am interested in how you made that master and what materials you use.

Thanks.

Thanks. I thought you meant 'my' (i.e., 'your') castings.
