As I put the latest Project together I thought I would do a thread for the Project so drop by regularly for new updates.

The latest ship is the German Destroyer Z32 and my first attempt at masking tape.

More pics on the link above 👍

Your modeling skills are top notch!

Not a practical gaming scale for me, but I like your modeling, not to mention your modeling productivity!

Nice looking ships. At 1/700 scale it looks like a few crewmembers are needed around the guns and up on the bridge.

And the Hood is now on its base, thanks Hussar but crew figures are about 3mm in this scale so that's a no :-)

Nice models, but at this scale don't you need space as big as a football pitch for a game?

Not really, a big table yes, my club have an old cinema as a permanent meeting room so for me space isn't an issue.

Yarkshire Gamer doesn't just talk about Big Games !

I really love reading about your progress! The ships are looking exceptionally well done! thumbs up thumbs upI watched your older basing video. If you get around to it, one on the 1/700 ships would be much appreciated as well.

Thanks

The link above will take you to the first video which deals with the start of my Bismark build, I plan to do Kit Reviews, Builds, Tutorials, ship histories and maybe even some game play when I get going.
