    Nice AAR. Love the fog! Reminds me of the Mr. Hollum's dilemma; Shall we beat to quarters? You're the officer of the watch.....

    BTW - Is that a commercial sea mat or something you made?

    Very cool. Looks like a good repurposing of an old dingy hull. Almost looks like a Lightning from the before photo.

    I looked over the Pedesoli stand at Waterloo 200 and still have the brochure somewhere. If I remember correctly 800-1000 euros for a Napoleonic period musket.


    Happy Birthday Jonas!

    Very nice looking and well detailed for 1/700. Can't wait to see them painted. I am not even thinking of buildings yet as I am still working on my first 1/700 scale ships!

    That is what I thought when I saw the USS Constitution model. Something was out of proportion. I just saw an unboxing video and the resin hull is definitely not as crisp as the plastic hulls.
