This is my scratch-built model of the cruiser, HMS Ajax, as she appeared in 1941. I used the plans in the Profile Morskie book, scaled up to 1/350th scale. The model was mainly made from plastic sheet and parts from my spares box. Taking everything in to account, this was the cheapest model that I've made in a long time. Total cost was £25, including the Profile Morskie book. The only photo-etch used was for the deck railings. Hopefully I'll be starting another scratch-build soon .
