Good job for a first try. Don't give up on painting the destroyers though. One thing to try for small models is a glasses-mounted magnifier, like "Opticaid".

more progress:

Looking good.

BTW, Miniature Market sells Axis & Allies ships, which are 1/1800 scale. I didn't see any 1/3000.

Again, more progress – good thing the war effort didn't work at my pace!

4 more ships completed today – Yeah!!! Just two more to go…

I work across the street from their warehouse/retail space. They have some crazy priced discontinued and auction stuff in there. These are from the 70s and were a dollar a piece. $1 USD!

This explains why, as well that I have no Bismark and a few other notables. Because they just have some random left overs. However, they have several more remaining. I just wasn't sure what I was looking for…since this is a new genre of miniatures for me.

I used my Naval Thunder Scenario lists to start me off. Basically, I'll just play some random scenarios at first.

And now they're complete – sort of, just waiting for the bases.
