    It isn't, I was doing it as a speculative boat, figured worst case I'd have one hanging from the rafters in amongst the fiberglass ones. If you want it, I won't post it for sale then. Might even get the print shop to do a second poster.

    I'll send you a pm in a few minutes...

    Did you come across a nice set of SMS Bayern/Baden plans in that mix by chance? [:D]

    Oh, yes. I love that class :) They will be scaled and posted for free, as always. I have a lot of reference pics, too; I'll need to figure out how to best make them available.

    They do have a menace about them. I think it is the huge gun houses.

    I've always thought they had a very nice visual appeal myself (not to mention the allure of those 15" guns). :)

    From what I have seen, it states "4 X 12 In, 4 X 8 In, and 12 X 6 In.

    Knight, we shifted topics from Evstafii to the Baden.

    Your stats are right for the former, the latter has 5x15 for its main punch.

    Baden and Bayern are both seriously tough cookies. Not only do they have those beautiful 8x15" guns, they also have heavy armor, twin rudders, and a killer length-to-beam ratio. Still, I wonder if a smaller pre-dreadnought might even out-turn the Baden. That would be interesting to find out.

    Sorry, been burning the candles at both ends this week.

    I vote for no lifelines...

    Yeah, I've been adapting to being on the day shift... it's wierd being awake while the sun is up. But I like it. So after work today, I have 4 days off with no 'sleep deprivation while I try to be on the same schedule as the wife, and then back on nights'. I expect I'll get a lot more done :)

    Hey Tug,

    Any update on these plans? Have you compiled a list?

    Thanks,

    Carl

    I have been working on the HMS Invincible plans, and I've asked Carl Kotori (who did the excellent Mehoshi Maru plans) to clean up and make fit for consumption the plans for IJN Mikasa and the Luigi Cadorna. I'll try to get a list compiled soon. Maybe after watching Eureka tonite :) Any specific requests?

    Well, I'd say you'd better clear some room on your wall for the award :) Cause I ain't close to being done. Lots of older stuff to come, and more WW2 as finances permit. It costs more to buy copies from the Archives, but I think that's the only way to get most of the WW2 US cruisers that I want. Edit: it occurs to me that I've got US DE plans on the hard drive almost ready. Probably more fun for the big gun crowd as they're only .5 units in fast gun, but they're neat little ships. Can also be used as convoys, when built as APDs (fast transports). [end edit]

    I also need to put more 1/96 destroyers out; I have plans for some Japanese, US, French, Brit, and even Russian. Germans, not so much (yet) but I'm working on it. Some cruisers would be good too.

    I still can't find those Zara Plans under file manager. You gona put them up? Im waiting on that one. Just so happens that I was flipping through the WW2 Cruisers looking at the Italian ones and decided that the Zara's were the best fit for MWC combat.

    The DE's would be nice for 1/96.
