    The other question would be, would you put a boarding party on a ship to scuttle it and make SURE the other guys can't salvage or retake it? Also, if the player controlling the struck ship has...

    In modern military terms, it's the difference between a "Mission Kill" vs a "Hard Kill." Mission Kill is when an asset is damaged beyond ability to continue mission, say a dive-bomber squadron at...

    Did find a supplier who's compliant with FS spec, but ten bucks for two ounces on a project that may never resume is a little steep. Tamiya X23 looks close enough though and a lot cheaper.

    Vallejo were my go-to for custom repaints in War at Sea days, more convenient for me to get and one of the Forumini crew had pre-built the cross-reference on them for our game. Also liked the easy...

    According to Winfield and Wikipedia, you have Canada 2' too long, at 170' it comes out about 1/710. Not much better of a match but a little.

    Target lengths for a 1/700 LD should be 2.906" on LD...

    These would be Independence/Washington and their successors, "super size" being my term--nominally classed as 74's, but in fact no more so than a Humphreys/Doughty Superfrigate was a "mere" 44.

    Another variable would be is deck length measured as a flat plane, or along the sheer of it? Different sheer curvature will subtly increase or decrease deck length.

    Here's both of Henry's 74's plus Bellona together in 1/500 or double-Ares scale. Top to bottom Bellona-Ganges-Orion, it's surprising that Canada has so much more hull outside the deck length.
