Here is my entry for this campaign, Revell's Haven-Class "S.S. Hope". She been sitting around the bench this past year after I develop an urge to build armor. I am over that now and ready to take on some delayed ship builds. I thought this one deserves to be finish.

Actually it's a diorama of a modeler taking the paint off a sub. It took forever to get the water effect just right.

And here is my HMS Trafalgar. I had so much fun painting it that I decided to strip all the paint off so I could paint it again! I even knocked one of the fins off so I could assemble it again!



Throw in a rubber ducky and it looks like you could have some bath time fun!

Thanks Gary. After two and a half years, the long-drydocked junk is done!




Looks amazing. Attention to detail is just incredible!

I have gone back and added my pics to the gallery.

No word on the Campaign Gallery. It seems our Campaign Manager has been AWOL since March 31. No doubt, Real Life has his attention right now.

Rory,

These more recent pictures of your USS England are excellent - I can really see the details now! It makes me want to build one...

Rory,
Your England looks great! The Measure 21 scheme is so dark, though, it is difficult to see against that white background - could you take some more pics against a darker backdrop so we can better appreciate your work?

From what I can see so far, it looks first rate!



Its actually stopped raining here and there is some sun. I will take her outside and get some brighter pictures

*Later*

Took some better pics in better natural light.

The junk's boom lashings are now done - ready for masts and sails!

I didn't notice that one hadn't been created. A request has been made.

Congratulations on finishing!

I know the feeling of trying to fix things and making it worse. I spent a bit of time trying to put the wheel back on an leIG-18, only to knock yet another piece off.

Going to call this one done. Spent pretty much the whole weekend on her. I am not 100% happy but reached a point where the more I tinkered the more I messed up.

So here is the USS England, warts and all




I looked for the campaign gallery to post these in but couldn't find it. I will post them there once it has been created or I am pointed in the right direction.

They were full-hull kits so I think they weren't played with much. Now, if they had been waterline ....

Did Pyro make a "Monitor and Merrimac" kit? I seem to remember building one as a kid. My brother built the Monitor and build the (Merrimac) Virginia.
...



They did - the combo kit was later issued by Life-Like and Lindberg,as I recall.

So did you and your brother have your ships fight it out?

I’m in with Pyro’s Chinese War Junk in 1/87 scale. Begun in 2015, I restarted it again this month after drydocking it for nearly a year. Here’s how she looked at the start of this month’s reboot:
I have since been working on the masts and sails.

Good progress. I hope to build one of these someday since one was named for a sailor from my hometown who was killed at Pearl Harbor.
