1/48 Guided Missile frigate " Oliver Hazard Perry"

Hey Guys,
Thought I would give a heads up on a new project of mine. Its a 1/48 Oliver Hazard Perry Class Frigate FFG 7 - FFG 61 Both long and short versions will be offered. If interested in a hull please email westcoastwarshipservices@gmail.com for more info and I will be sure to get back. Here is a pic of the master, getting her ready for the tooling work.

Hi Desron48,
Once you get it done chop a hull in 3 and send it to me in Australia, 3 one meter lengths in a box should be under maximum size I think
Cheers
Nick

Hi Joe,

Good to hear from you. I'd be glad to send some pic's of my build.........but first, I have to gain some knowledge on how to do it on this site.
In the meantime, everyone, they can be viewed on the build board on the WMU site. Also check out gallery 62, The USS Gurke DD-783 a Gearing class in 1/48th scale is another one of my builds.
