The nice thing in the John’s builds, is that there are no distraction: you see what you need to see, without boring sequences, to truly enjoy the modeling ! 

Thanks to our friend John from Davao Ship Modeller, at . we can see how easy is to form and plank the hull just in few hours.


With its 1:60 scale and 58 com of length, the Hunter Q-Ship isn’t a big model: it is the perfect choice for any modeler. For the beginner, because of its design; and for the expert, for the exquisite details.

The Hunter was originally a British Merchant Navy ship . She was later acquired by Royal Navy for her seafaring capabilities particularly suited to the North Seas, and converted for war duty as a Q-ship.

Like all other Q-ships, she was converted at the Queenstown shipyards in Ireland (hence the term Q-ship), as fitted-out as a decoy to lure submarines to the surface, with false structures to conceal its deck weaponry. These structures were designed for rapid removal and stowage below deck, revealing her guns only during battle ,while lowering its lifeboats into the sea.
