Hey Keith!

Welcome to the Mayhem!

Just to make you feel even worse about your models, look what someone else has done with their kits!

Welcome Keith.  Nice to see that you are already deep into the spirit of Mayhem with lots of projects on the go at once!  However, we will not accept that as an excuse for never finishing anything!   {-) {-)

Those 1:200th kits are evilly tempting Keith. I saw an example of the Nelson built and completed at the Yeovilton show last weekend and I have to say that it was as much temptaion as I have ever had to resist not to buy the Rodney kit that one trader had at the show.

The Hood will be even more difficult as it will be a superb model kit and a good size, even at 1:200th. I thought the Nelson was just right.

Welcome by the way and remember, if you motorise your ships, they will make ytheir own waves saving you the hassle :-))
