    So the 2016 IRCWCC Nationals is going to be in Bradford, PA June 19-24. Obviously not as exciting as going to Texas, but the short 3.5hr drive is a plus.

    I'm most likely going to bring HMS Prince of Wales again, but without the bugs. Not sure about what I will bring for a secondary ship yet, maybe something Canadian like HMCS Haida or HMCS Québec.

    What is everybody planning on bringing?

    Forgot it was a small pond, probably bringing Don's South Carolina... Maybe it will be a good luck charm.

    Take a look for yourself.

    I'm planning on running Suffren, plus maybe a small backup boat.

    "No where to run,,,,,,,,,,,,, no where to hide" I love it, theme song of the "Allied Scourge".
    Not really that small, but I wouldn't want to drive something 60" or better.

    ah shoot, that's downright spacious. Might get a bit busy with 3 dozen ships on it though.

    Scary thing for this cruiser captain is I'm afraid there won't be such a thing as the "outskirts of the battle" where I'm supposed to operate. :)

    I've been wanting to build one of the wobbly eight using one of Mark's kits. Hmm

    Hey Maxspin, have you ever made a wood hull?
    All you list are FG hulls, kind of limits your selection.
    Espana, Lion, Mississippi, several Italians (goes both ways)

    Carl, you can't argue with somebody who uses maths to decide the best ships.

    I think you like to suffix 'weenies' to things.

    Greg's Provence (Bretagne Class) could be interesting as well.
