Hi again from Stockholm, where we had a white Christmas. I undated my blog today with some ships I had time to paint up today. More US Navy WWI ships for all of you to look at.

Thanks and I hope everyone had a great Christmas.

Wonderful job painting the cage masts!

That is very nicely done.

I had a chance to visit the Texas several years ago, and it was an interesting experience. For one thing, the turrets look so big from the outside, but once you are in them, they feel cramped, especially if you can fill them mentally with the gun crews. Maybe I'm just claustrophobic.

I find it . . . interesting . . . that the USS Rhode Island is so much smaller than the USS Texas (these were the smallest and largest states in the union, back then).

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my post! It is amazing the evolution of the Battleship in just a short amount of time during WWI.
I will be taking my three ships into battle tomorrow night so I will have an AAR posted some time later this week!!
