Interesting day, April 20th. Some say it is a ‘cursed’ day, a day when more than statistically normal amounts of tragedy occur. From the birth of Adolf Hitler to Columbine, to Deepwater Horizon (and that’s just the last few years), many say ‘420[...]
The USS Iowa ( BB-61) was decommissioned in Mar 1949, but the war in Korea brought her back into service in Aug 1951 where she was the flagship of the Seventh Fleet under Vice Admiral Robert Briscoe. Her 16 inch guns regularly bombarded North [...]
Hey chaps, just thought I would post a recent commission, a long time since I completed anything! A bit of a departure for me, this being my first 'American' build, but as a Coastal Command version. A lovely kit and painting a white scheme is re[...]
