This is a small compilation of well known vessels which took part in the war of the Falkland Islands. This compilation lacks of missing ships from Argentina. So this is still a wipc (work in progress compilation). All ships/planes here are build in a scale of 1/700.
About this creation
The Falklands War (Spanish: Guerra de las Malvinas), also known as the Falklands Conflict, Falklands Crisis and the Guerra del Atlántico Sur (Spanish for "South Atlantic War"), was a ten-week war between Argentina and the United Kingdom over two British overseas territories in the South Atlantic: the Falkland Islands and South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands.


SS Atlantic Conveyor

Atlantic Conveyor was a British merchant navy ship, registered in Liverpool, that was requisitioned during the Falklands War.She was hit on 25 May 1982 by two Argentine air-launched AM39 Exocet missiles, killing 12 sailors. Atlantic Conveyor sank whilst under tow on 28 May 1982.





HMS Hermes

HMS Hermes was a conventional British aircraft carrier and the last of the Centaur-class.
Hermes was in service with the Royal Navy from 1959 until 1984, and she served as the flagship of the British forces during the 1982 Falklands War.
After being sold to India in 1986, the vessel was recommissioned and remains in service with the Indian Navy as the INS Viraat.






HMS Invincible

HMS Invincible was the Royal Navy's lead ship of the three light aircraft carriers in her class. She was launched on 3 May 1977 as the seventh ship to carry the name. She saw action in the Falklands War when she was deployed with HMS Hermes and took over as flagship of the British fleet when Hermes was sold to India. Invincible was also deployed in the Yugoslav Wars and the Second Gulf War (Iraq War). In 2005, she was decommissioned and eventually sold for scrap to the Turkish company Leyal Ship Recycling in February 2011.






HMS Sheffield

HMS Sheffield was the second Royal Navy ship to be named after the city of Sheffield in Yorkshire. She was a Type 42 Guided Missile Destroyer.
The ship was part of the task force sent to the Falkland Islands during the Falklands War. She was struck by an Exocet air-launched anti-ship missile from a Super Etendard aircraft belonging to the Argentine Navy on 4 May 1982 and foundered on 10 May 1982.

Great idea for a set. I love the scale and the details are well done. Will you model the actual Falklands?? Just kidding! Can't wait to see Part 2.

Quoting Achintya Prasad Excellent work man! The smaller aircraft also look excellent. Yeah, I checked out the link; kinda sad, I'd expect that a third-party knock-off LEGO brand could at least do half a decent job of the ship ;-)
Thanks Achintya

Wow! Perhaps you best micro-builds so far. The two carriers are absolutely superb. They both look like they were built at twice the scale you actually used. I can't wait to see your next compilation.

I don't know whether it is already in your plans, but at this scale, you might actually be able to build a Vulcan bomber. That would be a great addition to this set.

Quoting P. Voranc Lovely little ships, it is great that you've been so active in the last few weeks! Hermes is probably my favourite.
thanks

I already have one in 1/350. But 1/700 is a good challenge.

Quoting Clayton Marchetti I whole heartedly agree Lego needs to make concave slopes! Great looking ships! I love how you made the ships masts. Very nicely detailed. I like those Harrier jets too.
Lets start such a petition! :D

Thx david. I will sign any petition which includes such curves. :)

Quoting Serge P For 1:700 don't know, but for the scale of 1: 350 in Sluban (Chinese analogue Lego) is ready planes j15 (su33), j20 and a helicopter ka27. Stamped plastic quality is quite good.
In my opinion I prefer to build even the planes on my own. But thanks for the advice.

Quoting David Roberts Excellent work to get recognisable ships at such a small scale in Lego. It's a shame that Lego don't make a concave curve to get the right shape for the ski jumps. Would using cheeses make the ramps too rough in texture? Regardless, a great set of ships.
You dont know, how long and how much different ways I tried to get a good sky jump. No matter if in 1/700 or 1/350. Finally went back to this simple way. :/ Yes, those concave curve are missing...

Quoting Serge P Great job! One Argentine ship you already have)) Destroyer "Hercules" - the same "Sheffield", but with "Exocet". I would like to see the cruiser "General Belgrano".
I already thought about the General Belgrano. The most important ship on Argentinas side.
