    Nikki,
    As previously discussed at great lengths, during large events it is generally not great plan to limit battling time to only a few ships in any given format. With some exceptions being if it is a three or four, ore even five day event and the first day is more spartan in attendance. I believe that the Taskforce should be maximum participation in the formats being promoted by whomever is organizing the event. Small one dayer battles, or local battles in which we have a preconceived notion that the purpose of the battle is revolving around a particular theme gives those in attendance the expectation that the theme will occur. If the consensus amongst the battlers wishing to attend the Taskforce III event is to have a themed battle, then that can be addressed. Otherwise I feel that its own occasion is more appropriate with other battling being relegated second in importance to that theme. In other words, an August battle for the /96 scale Denmark straits ships does not conflict with the goal of max participation in either format, but in conjunction to the 96 scale themed battle, a weekend of battling could be had by any who wished to attend...

    What were the differences between the Admiral Hipper, and the Prinz E?
    As far as the hull, and superstructure.

    All the admiral hipper class ships were a slightly different legnth except for the unfinished seydlitz & lutzow. I couldn't spot any SS differences, but I'm sure there were probably a few of those even if just subtle ones.

    SS seems to be the same, but the hulls are pretty different. PE is 681ft 5in long, whereas Hipper is 665ft 4in. Beam is a little different as well. PE is 71ft 2in wide, but Hipper is 69ft 11in. Also the bow is different. PE has the nice looking Atlantic bow, but Hipper has a blunt bow sort of like Scharnhorst had before they remade it.

    That's about all I could find.
