Last night Jan & I enjoyed a superb concert locally by Ade Edmondson and the Bad Shepherds and during the interval my thoughts briefly tuned to the current naval project here... I wonder if you could give me some pointers? Ok, I love the novels of Patrick O'Brian and John Biggins but I am all at sea with this naval stuff!
- Can you suggest a good source of fittings for ships- I am not too concerned for the highest quality brass but rather sometime I can mount on the balsa superstructure I intend to build
- Naval enthusiasts excuse my ignorance but were any submarines used in Lakes in WW1- can subs be used in such places as the Italian lakes? I have a conceit of San Martino having a rusty.unreliable one to give them an edge upon army(navy)red/white)
- Cheap naval figures in 54mm - any ideas
- Finally any tips from those who have tested the waters already in this modelling area- I intend to build fun,sturdy vessels for garden use rather than scale models
Finally apologies for the shameless puns and I look forward to your suggestions. have a great Sunday one and all!
