Some opposition for Jutland at Wicksteed.
« on: November 22, 2015, 02:40:23 pm »

Early stages of my budget Hochseeflotte for 2016.

SMS Nassau and a couple of B98 type torpedo boats. Builders foam, cheap ply and odds and ends of balsa etc.

Hi all




This Wickstead event sounds interesting. I could add to the Hochseeflotte with V105.
What are the proposed dates for Wickstead 2016? Next year is pretty busy for us but I could see about fitting it in. Would it be worth the massive drive down from Scotland?

If you mean beneath the destroyers then it will be the Nassau.

You don't think my liddle Nassau will be sunken twice >>:-(


There seems to be the potential for a decent sort of Home Fleet from what has appeared at Wickie in the past or am I totally confused as usual.


Progress is getting the deckhouses and funnels sorted on the destroyers before those of the Nassau, then I can concentrate on moulding the fittings in the house if it gets cold, leaving spraying etc. till the spring. I'll put some pics up when enough movement. I want to experiment using staples for the railings since I need a lot and these are budget build.


Cheers Tony

Ohh there will be opposition to the opposition!!!

I've taken on a project that was originally completed in one year- I'll attempt to do it in less than 4 months! Wish me luck :-))
