    is there/ are there going to be threads for the respective fleets such that the fleet commanders might preach to their flocks? it would be interesting to see if any plans develop.

    That's not how it works in real life at NATS.

    Well Kas I think that is exactly how IRCWCC Nats works. After all we must Equalize the fleets because of your awesome performance at most events.

    We must try to keep it fun for everyone, not just you pounding on the AXIS sortie after sortie.

    LOL nice. Hey BTW Kas, I don't have my schedule lined out at all for going down to NATS, but will be looking to spend about a week to a week and a half down there beforehand to visit with Mum, and see my Brother, his wife, and the baby bump that will soon become a child that I will spoil ferociously. Before long I'll start figuring that out, so if you want to ride down with me to GA, hang with your friends in ATL, and then get a ride back after NATS, that'd be cool.

    HMS Big Ugly shaping up nicely.
    Water is very hard in the moat, but Chris Pierce did a beautiful job. Why buy a 3d printer when you can rent a designer and printer? 20190309_102033.jpg

    Hell really has frozen over. Carl went allied, and has 3d printed parts on his boat.

    Oh yeah, I'm aware. I've just never seen pics of *his* boat. and the only Rodnols and Nelsols I've seen are battle pics from the Big Gun guys.
