here are a few pics from the september battle
Very cool, so only 1 sink? And action shots?
No matter the format....a ship always looks good sitting on the bottom.
no there were 2 sinks that day but no shots of the other hsip or action chits all ppl there were running ships
pics of the Washington???????
Nice photos Jason! Now people can see what the Duke of Edinburgh Class and Defence Class armoured cruisers look like. The Defence Class ship (HMS Minotaur) is the one with 2 main and 10 secondary turrets. HMS Black Prince (DoE Class) has 6 main turrets and 10 secondaries in casemates. Clark Ward (Tugboat) now owns the molds to produce these hulls.
Very nice pictures.
It is nice to see the carrier out there.
Is that first picture a Graf Spee? Two forward turrets and single rear turret all with triple mounts?
I need to find my other pics to compare but it sure looks like a Spee to my uneducated eye.
No Mack, it's Jason Clark's New Jersey. Graf Spee had 2 triple turrets, though it briefly had a 2nd dummy bow turret during commerce raiding to confuse identification. Scott Foster's first NABS model was a Graf Spee with the dummy turret. He'd bought it from someone in the US.
Man I love those WW1 ships!!!!!
