|BUILDING: USS GEARING
This page covers the construction and arming of an American destroyer, the USS Gearing with 3-Guns. The novel aspect of this project is a completely vac-u-formed superstructure.
|REFIT: USS MISSOURI
This 12 foot, 1/72 scale model of the USS Missouri had fallen into major disrepair after years as a recruiting tool for a 1/144 club. Follow the process of bringing this proud ship back to life.
|BUILDING: CONVOY VESSELLS
Never been the most glamorous ships to build, but they do have their place in warship combat. Check out several vac-u-formed merchant ships that have been built by club members as targets.
|ARMING LARGE: DKM TIRPITZ
Arming an 11 foot Battleship was still no easy task. It also took countless hours to detail this behemoth. A project that could have easily overwhelmed most modelers. Check this ship out!
|TESTING: SUBMARINE TORPEDOES
So how to you get a 1/72 scale torpedo to travel straight, underwater and can you hit your target? Testing, testing and more testing. The successful design didn’t just fall out of a tree. OUCH!
|BUILDING: RM POLA
Carrying 8 foot long Cruisers around can be a task. Make things easy on yourself- split in in half. Can it fit into a VW Bug; probably not, but it will fit in most hatchbacks.
|ARMING SMALL: GERMAN E-BOAT
Putting guns in a Battleship has got to be easy with all that room. Try arming one of these little 18 inches hulls; and you want radio, motors, steering and gun system? You’ve got to be kidding.
|RESURRECTION: NEW LIFE FOR THE IJN AOBA
Broken in half during transit from Washington to California. This ship was being given up for dead until a new owner stepped in to feed new life into this once great fighting Cruiser.
