Another progress report

I have been quite busy again today working on my next 'How to ...' blog entry. This one explains how I build the larger model ships that I use with my figure games.

The process of making the models, taking photographs, and describing what I have done at each stage of the construction of the model takes a lot longer than I expected. I had hoped to have finished it today, but it looks more than likely that it will take until tomorrow or possibly even Wednesday.

In the meantime I have been working on one or two ideas for model ships that might work with both 15mm figures and David Crook's version of MEMOIR OF BATTLE AT SEA (MOBAS). I think that it is not an insuperable problem, but that it might require a bit of ingenuity on my part.


  1. Hi Bob,

    Hugely intrigued and looking forward to what is coming!

    All the best,


  2. David Crook,

    I should have been able to finish the hulls today ... but real life got in the way as usual.

    I am planning to build the 15mm/MOBAS models along the lines of the model River/Coastal Gunboat. This is very much a 'try it on the dog' exercise that might well be a disaster ... but until I try I won't know!

    All the best,
