A bit more work on my own fleet, today. My sons are plugging along with theirs, so a future post will brag on them a bit.


A glimpse of my pre-dreadnoughts:

These are about 2.125 to 2.25 inches long.

They look beautiful.

Great project! What rules set are you planning to use?

All of these are lovely, and have a certain old school charm. Very nice work!

@Security Minister Critter

Thanks, mate!


We are going to start with Bob Cordrey's Portable Naval Wargame rules (in an earlier article on the blog, I link to the sites which inspired the project as well as the rules, would be posted on Christmas or just after), but I have Perfidious Albion that we will graduate to, once the lads feel fully comfortable with PNW.

@Texas Jack

Thank you for your comment(s), they are appreciated. When done, we will have approximately 60 ships built for under $18 USD, with enough "hulls" left over to make another 30 or so destroyers and 3 cruisers.
