Thanks for sharing mate, and looking forward to what you treat us to next



Its going to be a while, I have to build some wingy things for some Aeroscale campaigns. I have Douglas Bader's Spitfire MK Va and a Corsair to build. Then back to boats.

It will be something smaller that's for sure. I think I am leaning towards the USS Pegasus for the Under 1000 tons campaign. She is a 251 ton, 41m long hydrofoil. Just a tad bit smaller than the 41000 ton, 257m long Iwo Jima.

I am definitely on a modern(ish) warship kick lately. My fleet worth of WW2 ship kits is on the back burner.

Now that is a step down in size!

I hear you though: sometimes its good to mix things up with different vessels and time frames etc. Even better to throw in a few wing things from time to time...

Be seeing you over on the Big Three campaign

Couldn't agree more. Ironically ships are my 'mixing' things up go to. I am primarily an armour modeler

Rory,

Im sorry, totally missed your commissioning!!

Great work, she looks awesome and really busy with the airing and boats, and very nice with some escorts, too!

Fantastic job, and really fast! It was really fun to follow your build!

Cheers

Thank you for the kind words all

Currently working through a modelling doldrum. Need to get the mojo flowing again.
