All about model ships and boats.

1/350 Roma by Trumpeter

by Michael Wayne Knowles on August 29, 2013 in Ships -- 12 Comments

There are some moments in human history characterized by the drama of a noble vessel going down in horrible disaster. Such was Titanic. Such was Hindenberg. Fewer folks know the story of Roma. She was the last of her class […]

1/350 Graf Spee by Academy

by Michael Wayne Knowles on August 28, 2013 in Ships -- 15 Comments

This is one of my earliest big ships and it was a joy to build. Despite Academy’s heavy handed molding of the finer details, I found the model to be very satisfying. I was able to replace most of them […]

Airfix HMS Prince

by Joe Caputo on August 24, 2013 in Ships -- 7 Comments

This was my wife, Carol’s, first model. I asked if she’d be interested in building anything, and she asked if they made sailing ships. She thought they looked neat. I was at a contest with my buddies, when I came […]

And after a period of no production for moving… DD441 continues

by Rob Anderson on August 24, 2013 in Ships -- 6 Comments

So back in full swing on my Wilkes project and thought I would post an update, starting to add PE and all the little parts, I am especially happy with how my dual 40mm tubs turned out, scratchbuilt them from […]

1/35 Revell Offshore Power Boat

by Joe Caputo on August 13, 2013 in Ships -- 2 Comments

This model has been around for a long time. It hasn’t lost it’s appeal, and still looks like it’s going 100 mph standing still. I wanted mine to be a little different. I remembered a boat I’d seen, being loaded […]

1/72nd Tamiya “Vosper” Fast Patrol Boat

by Craig Abrahamson on August 12, 2013 in Ships -- 12 Comments

Every once in a while, I’ll get a “wild hair” and (if something catches my eye), build a ‘floaty thing’. I’ve got an armada of a half-dozen of ’em now and this one looked pretty neat when I spotted it. […]

U.S. Coast Guard 36′ Motor Lifeboat

by Mike Maynard on August 4, 2013 in Ships -- 8 Comments

It’s Coast Guard Day, August 4, 2013! I almost forget to honor the founding of my Service’s birthday, August 4, 1790. As one might imagine I do build a lot of Coast Guard subjects (most are kitbashed or scratchbuilt) there […]

Lindberg Coastal Patrol Boat

by Joe Caputo on July 28, 2013 in Ships -- 6 Comments

nice, old kit, still available, and close to 1/72. Makes into a decent looking model OOB.

WIP 1/72 Revell S boat

Waiting for paint, thought I would share smome pics


by AL HOFFMAN on June 27, 2013 in Ships -- 6 Comments

Won’t go into this heavy cruiser’s history as most people using this website are familiar with it. The kit is the Matchbox 1/700th scale built back when it was the only show in town. Box stock with the exception of […]
