Anything worth doing is worth overdoing. Keep up the good work!

Cool! I especially like the rivet detail.

Next Summer the kids and I have a project planned to do big WW1 (ish!) ships, about 2 feet long and made from cereal packets, etc.

Our plan is to make the funnels, turrets and bridge removable and take them to the grandparents large garden where we'll use nerf guns to knock bits off.

No range modifiers needed there!

I've always argued with the wife over a need for a Nerf and you've just given me a cracking reason! I now know what me & Minime will be up to in 2019….

Bozkashi Jones;

A brilliant idea! Many ages ago, when I was young, we would buy 1/700 scale models (they were around a buck each back then)and play naval games in the local elementary school parking lot, main guns got to use a pellet rifle while secondaries had to use a BB gun.

Clearly not an idea for today's world but it was Jolly Fun back in 1966!

I have tons of blue board that would make a nice sturdy hull, if you live anywhere near metro Detroit shoot me an email at daftrica89 at yahoo. I will be happy to give you some free.

Anton – thank you so much for the kind offer, but as I'm on the other side of the pond I'm unable to take you up on it!

Mind you – if you have enough blue board I suppose I could fly over and then make a REALLY big pre-dread to float myself back?!

And those parking lot battles sound way too much fun :)

Jeffers – last time I checked Tesco were selling single shot nerf guns for a fiver – when Mrs Jeffers asks, just blame me.

I will be running a game using my entire fleets at Spartacon on 12JAN19 in Lansing Michigan if anybody wants to give it a try

These are spectacular

What are you going to do with them? Hold a regatta? Circus Maximus meets the America's Cup? :-)

Very nice job.

Gerard Leman,

I will be running a game using them at Spartacon in Lansing on 12JAN19………it does take up a bit of floor space but they are generous to me
