Ships and planes.

Well I finished the ships. Unfortunately no one took me up on my challenge, oh well. Here are the answers.

Number 1 a Russian Krivak I class frigate. Number 2 a British Type 22/2 frigate. Both were made by Navwar.

Number 3 was a Norwegian Oslo class frigate. Number 4 was a Charles F. Adams DDG. Number 5 is a French D'Orves frigate.

Now for the harder ships. Number 5 in the back was a Russian Berezina AOR. Number 6 was a Spanish Baleares FFG. Number 7 was a Dutch Kortenaer frigate.

Finally the hardest, the aircraft. 1A was a Wasp helicopter. 2A was a Lynx helicopter. 3A was a Buccaneer bomber and 4A was a Gazelle helicopter. I wouldn't blame someone for not guessing the helicopters they're practically blobs.

Here is all the ships together.

I now have everything done for the Baku scenario. I've also finished the computer work for the Russian verses Japanese scenario. Finally here's a preview of my next Megablitz unit.

Update and a little game

I've started getting some ships ready for my next Ship wreck game.

As you can see some of them are just being based to my current basing system.

Now for the game part. There are eight ships in the photo and four different types of aircraft. How many can you identify?

I'll post the winner with the most right and answers next week once I finish painting them. Good Luck.

Update and the Imperial War Museum

Hello all, not much has been happening this week. I finished the Baku scenario and I'm starting to collect up the ships needed for it. I've also started getting stuff together for my next Megablitz unit. Since I don't have any new pictures this week; I've decided to share some of my past adventures. Back in 2005 when I was deployed to Iraq, I spent my 2 week leave in England. One of the places I visited was the Imperial War Museum in London. Here are some of the photos I took.

The entrance guarded by a pair of 14" battleship guns. Over to the left you can make out a section of the Berlin wall.

What a horrible thing to do to a tank!

A Matilda II tank.

A miniature submarine. It's missing the torpedoes.

Part of a very large trench warfare model.

...which was followed by a trench you could walk through.

A model of the Berlin wall.

Finally a LRDP Chevy that had recently been found buried in the desert.

Hopefully next week I'll have some painted models to show you.
