You must have a magic wand or something.

Your ships are always impressive. Coastal actions seem to me to be the only realistic style of game using such large models. Even so, I see the ships more as collectors items than gaming models.

VSB: any chance of a basic tutorial on how you build these ?

Here is one for a 1/2400 ship. The scale is different but the principles are the same, though for larger ships I actually use a paper printout for the deck.

Most excellent. Any videos, tutorials, books? I would pay money to learn the techniques behind those!

You're killing me with ALL these very nice, scratch-built models!

Keep them coming……..

I used to scratch build ships in 1/1200 scale. Your talent far exceeds mine! Very nice.

How do you get such thin hull sides on the trawler?

Plasticard, or cardstock, glued to the wooden hulls, after sanding down the upper hull, for a flush fit?

No… very thin balsa.

Ah, I see.

Thanks.
