    There is a good video of a Kumano at NATS.

    Never, Allied propaganda.

    But it did not sink, and I had been rammed, and you kept shooting at it, bad boy Kas.

    Has only been sunk 3 times in 8 years, and never by no "Whats wrong with our ships today, British boat"

    Just my opinion of course, but the best cruiser in the hobby by far, due to its size, and dual rudders.

    That was your Kumano??:rolleyes::rolleyes:
    I thought "out of control" was for the ROOKIE CAPTAINS

    I did not shoot after you were rammed, I was out of ammo. (video)
    I think the Kumano is a great boat, I just have not seen anyone battle it well. :laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

    I almost fell down laughing, but I can say the same about those I-boats. :crying::crying::crying::crying::crying::crying::crying::crying: They will make you cry, lol. Make sure you build what you are interested in, a cruiser, or smaller boat of some kind. What you should be looking for is something that is 24 second or faster for speed, just so you can run away if you get yourself in trouble. Kas sinks allot due to his 26 second speed, and because the British boats look like a tub of some kind, lol.

    Don't worry we are friends and just kidding each other. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes: Of course you can never tell with him, you know how those British boat captains are. :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

    after the "lame" ram call. You needed to identify the ramming ship.:):)
    AND I did not shoot you AFTER THE RAM!!
    What allied propaganda?
    Never argue with VIDEO

    You did not sink.

    Been busy with school the last few weeks, so kept delaying the purchase of a ship.
    I was pretty dead set on a cruiser, but I got some money from family members, so I ended up ordering the Tennessee E-fire battle kit from Strike. I intend to build the USS California.

    Thanks! I just bookmarked that thread for my future build. Should be helpful for visualizing where everything goes.

    Cool, look forward to seeing your build! (and watching it sinking from making rookie battleship captain mistakes muhahahaha) Gotta learn somehow right?

    Oh yes I definitely anticipate getting sunk a lot the first season or two! In the meantime Im planning on making it to a couple battles this summer to get a feel for the combat using loaner boats.

    Will do Kas. Might make it meeting with him, since I'm sure I'll be overwhelmed with the parts.

    I assume in the absence of a build thread, you've been frantically building and are almost done right?

    Sorry for the late response. I'm currently out of state, and haven't checked this site. I received the kit back in May. Brought the kit and parts to a Saranac battle with Kas and Mark for them to look over. I think a Tennessee may be a bit too complex for me to start out, so I may end up buying a cruiser hull and using the Tennessee innards to make a battle-ready cruiser. And save the Tennessee hull for a future build.

    Build will be on Saturday Oct. 28 at the compound.--- from 13:00 till we are done--:bang::bang::bang:
    If you are ordering from a supplier let us know so we might group order (save on shipping)
    Bring any supplies you want to sell or trade.
    I do have CO2 if you want to fill some bottles.
    There is a perfect 100' course at the house if you need it.
