Avon Vale is a Type 2 and Cotswold is a Type 1
… British Hunt class escort destroyer. Remember, these should be printed off onto light grey color heavy cardstock paper.

I really must get around to making one of these

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you, no. 1 British naval wargamer (David), for the compliment of your interest. :-)

There are instructions about the technique under Sleipner's plan on CoatneyHistory.

Here I've done the Type 1 and 2 Hunts, but it is really the 3s with their torpedoes that I've wanted to do.

I should also get around to doing Alaska and Guam.

Be sure to make an extra copy or two, in case you make a mistake … or I have. :-/ :-)

What I think is the Cotswold aft superstructure has right angle corners on the forward ends. The location for it has rounded corners there.

Am I just hopelessly blind?

If you look closely, you will see black marks for the superstructure walls. I whited out areas just to save you ink. :-)

Ah. I see. Very nice

Very nice job, as usual, though too large for me. (At the moment using 1/2400 and smaller).

Do you actually game with these large-scale models, or are they just for display?

I game at 1:1200 and 1:700, Mark, and they work out fine.

In St. Louis MANY years ago, Ray Runge and I were in a 1:700 game with Andrew Waller – grandson of Australian war hero and captain of HMAS Perth who died with her. (He was also HMAS Stuart's captain and commodore of The Scrap Iron Flotilla (book) earlier in the Mediterranean.)

Andrew had my 1:700 cardstock Perth leading their Allied battleline … for some reason. :-)

And *they* WON. :-o … dancing in and out of my Long Lances' maximum ranges and me exhausting my 14" shells at long range.

I am the worst wargame player I know of. Seriously. :-/ :-)

I've added some Sims class plans, and there is another fellow who is adding WW2 U.S. destroyer plans on Papermodelers com.

Mostly, I've been designing boardgames, including Postcard Barbarossa! which anyone is free to print off and mail in postcard format, as long as (only) my copyright statement is retained as well as its Dedication and my quotes about war & history.
