  1. Hi Bob,
    How is the break going from your Project? Hope your refreshed and ready at the bit to tackle things. I've just starting on my new Project - 'The Spanish-American War' in 15mm - thought yo'd be interested as you have 15mm in Colonials. Cheers. KEV.

      The break is going well ... except that I seem to have found my 'spare' time taken up with doing things like sorting out THE NUGGET, doing some gardening, and framing a picture.

      I saw your blog post about your Spanish-Anerican War project. It's a war that I've wargamed in the past, mainly concentrating on the naval aspects. I'll follow your progress with interest.

      All the best,


    2. Bob,
      I'm looking forward to getting started on the Spanish-American Project in the next few weeks- in the mean time I've been thinking about building an American Cruiser- which could feature in my 15mm games - the ship model would be done at a smaller scale- perhaps 1/300th or there abouts. Cheers. KEv.

      A US Navy cruiser would be an interesting project,as the designs that had been built by 1898 were quite diverse in origin and looks. I look forward to seeing it when it is finished.

      All the best,
