    We are back but no cookies. Here is my H-39 that I started in the fall of 2012 and finished in the fall of 2017 ( just a slow builder) and the Z boat in the front is the first big ball destroyer built in 1989, that started the whole single shot torpedo destroyer/cruiser craze and now that NAMBA has raised its max pressure from 100 to 150 PSI it can fit two banks using MJV's (instead of a single larger big ball valve) at 135 PSI. The other photo is two German Battlecruisers I am building, one for my brother and the other for a good combat captain in S.F. . I am building two light cruisers and a German type IX sub next. After a 20 year hiatus from big gun, my family and I have decided to play that format again and at the last event we had the most fun we have had in along time. It was a great group of people who just want to shot ships and give each other crap while doing it and they had the cookies (chocolate covered). I will get a schedule posted after it is made and if anyone is interested in having a good time shooting up people come out, plus they have loaner boats for new people to try and don't worry about getting sunk the boats are built for that.

    I think you may have misspelled ZBoats last name there, or perhaps set your autocorrect to german, because it certainly looks a bit like you're implying something that could be construed as an offensive personal attack, which are uncool in the civilized land of grown ups playing with toy boats, and surely none here would do such. I urge you to correct your post to avoid such an embarrassing breach of courtesy.

    I understand that miscommunication between adults can occur, and I would very much like to avoid any... So please, lets not jaunt about pissing on eachother by intent or accident, let us not sabotage and raise discord and discontent in what is already a too small hobby.

    Its better than Bismarck. It gets 3 pumps instead of two, with three rudders it turns the same, it has underwater torpedo's, the ship is wider allowing larger magazines and is much more stable. The down side is it weighs more and only has 8 main guns. I had an H-39 and sold it in 1992, I built Tirpitz and I wish I had never sold the H.

    Not very many people on the planet will ever agree with your philosophy or opinion on any ship Nikki. Just an observation. You have your own unique way of thinking and that's ok, just rarely does it align with anyone else's. Lol.

    Nothing wrong with that, we refer to ships as she.

    @Z Boat has been slugging it out with the allies, but Japan just joined the lobby!!!!
    I'm going to buy Kitakami from Joe
    Those Pesky Allies Aren't gonna get a walk in the park!!!!!

    Also @greechronicles may get Z 32 from Joe... Better convert to the Axis by now...

    Even better!!!!! My sister wants to build a Captani Romani, the Italians are in too...

    Allies Beware!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Edit: My sister actually got a Duca instead of a Captani

    Do you have plans for the Cap and Zboats? I am also going to build 2 Capitani's and 2 Zboats to help get boats into new peoples hands after the Nov. event then build an I-400. See you guys tomorrow and it looks like we will have more capital ships that target ships.

    Our ships aren't ready for the water. The Kitakami isn't in the best condition. Cap is only an idea that will probably happen. The Z boat is Z 32 that Joe is selling. I saw it at the build session. Gunn Hee is sure he wants the Z...

    Yeah see you tomorrow

    I rebuilt the the Japanese transport so you should be fine with it if you want to run it. I am going to run Z 25 one sortie to show you guys one way to arm a destroyer. I will bring the new Scharnhorst but not sure if it will fight.
