    Thanks Rob, I've never tried to cut mouse mat material and wondered if the knife method would sort of snag and stretch the material as you cut. I take your point about the sharp blade.

    I thought...

    Hi Rob, I have the same problem with my 6 x 4 Deepcut mat as my table is 1.5m sq. I just let it hang over the edge, because you never know if the table may grow a little longer one day. :happy:

    The last time I went to Partizan was when it was still in the Stately Home, beautiful building but a poor venue. The Newark Showground is an ideal venue, light, airy, plenty of parking and when...

    I started out with the thought that 1 1st rate, 2 x 74 or 62's and 3 frigates would fit the bill, British and French only. I've just told Mrs V how many ships Paul has thinking she would realise the...

    If you knew which year you could probably find their name from the organisers but if like me one year seems to slide into the next it might be harder than it sounds.

    You've got HOW MANY ships. :clap::clap::clap:

    I keep looking at them and thinking "I don't need anymore" I'm never going to have more than 8 on the table, maybe 10 but muuuum I would really like...

    That's a really interesting idea, quite a scary idea as well. I can understand the theory of it but it's a bloody bold thing to do the first time to see if it works. Hats off to you....

    You're all doing very nice work on the modelling front, I'm afraid I'm very much of a light weight where actual modelling is concerned but I'm enjoying seeing what you are turning out. :thumbsup:

    Well done Anthony, you're away quickly with the medals. Congratulations :salute:

    Don't worry if you can't find any of the 98 I'm partial to a nice Calvados, or a Malt Whisky from the Islands...

    Thanks for the Rep Dobbs, as for the story just go for it, I always enjoy a game report.

    She's tried to substitute with Brandy from a different coloured bottle once but we came to the understanding that she wouldn't do it again if I stopped drawing on her table tops.

    Rob thanks for the Rep, glad you enjoyed it.

    I think this would be a pretty good layout to try Dobbs current rules as a sailing test but not necessarily as a fight unless against an opponent. I...

    You should get together with Dobbs he has a lot of masts and you have a lot of hulls, I'm sure you could make a couple of whole ships between you. :takecover:

    You are amazingly prolific Rob but it sounds like between you and Dobbs theres a lot of de-masted shipping lying around. Argus is looking very nice indeed.

    From your picture I wasn't sure about them all being black and white but I think there is some mileage in them being uniform in colour, it sort of identifies them as being our Americain enemies....

    Chris/Vol thanks a lot, the pics are a big help. When I get ships boats I can retire my Greek Penteconters, they are almost old enough to draw their pension.

    Thanks Chris, I was wondering about the battery set. I've been collecting small cardboard rolls with the thoughts of making some shore batteries, this might be an easier way forward.
