    Can someone please update the status of this combat format? Are there actually clubs holding combat events in this scale, and if so, where and when?

    Thanks,

    Rob

    The Midwest Naval Combat Club in the Dayton OH area has Battlestations battles each year. We mix them in with our Treaty battles several times a year. Our biggest Battlestations battle is usually our Task Force event in the September / October time frame.

    I expect that more BaS! ships will be made once the 3D printed guns become more widely available.

    I believe the Midwest group on Ohio is the only ones that are active with the format.

    There are a few other captains scattered about, but yes, the Midwest Naval Combat Club still does Battlestations.

    Working out the servo and gear for the rotation on the quad torpedo mount now. Should be able to get it to the point where I just need to install the rx, batteries, and bottle/regulator by tomorrow evening.

    The boat on the right looks like a 1/144 Montcalm. Your Mogador looks great. Can't wait to hear how you make out with her in battle. :)
