The main parts

Hope you like it as much as I do. By the way one of the small squares on the cutting mat equals 1 cm . The ship is round about 28 cm long!

 

A little bit more progress on the Steamer for Cruel Seas

I did a little bit more with the Rheinland steamer. basically more sanding and filling. I added the funnel and the life boat racks. now only the fine detail like windows , anchors etc are missing. Then molding will commence .

I will be at the Kiepencon on Sunday with a cruel seas participation game more info on the con here.

Hope to see you there!

The next ship to be build for Cruel Seas will be a 1/300 cargo steamship . It will be a bit bigger then the Rheinland.

The next museum we visited was  in La Gleise.The most stunning exhibit there was a real Tiger II tank:

And the museum itself

Tomorrow it is Crisis 2016!

World War II Miniatures in 28 mm

As I don’t have the time to paint miniatures at the moment . Real work comes in-between sometimes! I post some older miniatures.

Starting with my Bolt Action 28mm World War Two collection. More here

Here is a very special miniature for my Bolt Action German army. It is a Warlord figure with a special head , sculpted by Paul Hicks for me. It resembles my own head, so I can actually lead my little soldiers from up front 🙂 !
