Leander class frigates - photos or line drawings?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Just wondering if anyone has any good photos or line drawings (ideally 3 view) of the Leander class frigates? General information on attributes, armament etc would also be welcomed!

 

I have started dabbling with a new 3d model and wanted to do a number of different versions to reflect the evolution of this class.

 

Any help with info would be gladly welcomed!

 

Thanks

 

Chris

there's 3 different Type 12s in the Falklands Mod... 12i, 12L, 12M

 

unless you're talking about the ww2 Leander/Dido class... THOSE we could use....

 

 

edit: those will need some ini editing, as all the 'exported' ships have been commented out.

Yes there are three type 12's in the Falkands Redux mod - they are good models but don't really fit the bill to represent the RN ships of the 1960s through to late 1970s.

The 12M is a Rothesay class, the 12I is a chilean mod with exocets mounted on the hanger, a phalanx plus a cougar helicopter welded to the pad. The 12L is an Exocet Leander - but as it is an update to the SF1 version none of the rear Seacat launchers work. 

 

I'm hoping to do a number of the Leander versions - gun armed, Exocet and Seawolf and possibly even Ikara. Ideally also have the helipad free if anyone has the inclination to try to land there. Though it might be good to have a bit more variety for guarding Eagle and Ark Royal!

 

The reason for asking for drawings is that although the photos are great, nothing beats a scaled line drawing for making a model from - even the painting images from Airfix kits would be great! 

 

Thanks dsawan - the solidmodel site in particular looks to be a really useful resource!

 

cheers

Perhaps you can get in touch with the original author and work something out with him? It would be much quicker and easier to alter the existing models and make the variants you need rather than scratch-build everything yourself.

A good idea WBS - I did contact suicidal a while back but to no response - just tried again so hoping for the best!

 

Also thanks for those Colmack - that's a really useful resource.
