    I thought the Lexington could only be built as a aircraft carrier per the rules or in different formats can it be built as a battle cruiser? I have the BC plans my self I had bougt a plan sheet off of Ebay

    Beautiful work.
    I am always impressed with the gear rcengr has produced. And you built it nicely. congrats.
    you know? You are only 6 hours away from the Nats. Suffren and the Balto class cruiser would be great boats for a large battle. minor mod for IR/CWCC rules will make it more powerful

    I had asked the question at one point and someone typed it was a no go, but seemed to have left things out...

    Poking in for a short bit to say HELLO!
    Are those my old masters for the French quad turrets? The asymmetry looks about right for what I was making back then....
    Miss all of you and especially the build sessions!

    Hello! No, they are 3d printed by Mark Jenks. We still have Tuesday night builds at Phil's in Huber Heights. You are more than welcome to stop in.

    Very nice ships. Question on the Scharnhorst, are you running 2 x 1unit pumps for I thought she was a 5 unit or 5.5 unit ship.
