Something different, other things I paint... I have a wide range of interests, never really sticking to one for very long. Once upon a time, I had read the late Tom Clancy's Red Storm Rising, and it had gotten me interested in modern naval wargaming. At one time I had started writing my own novel, but that is another story. GHQ 1/2400 models are beautiful, each a work of art in it's own right, but expensive. So, armed with mt copy of Janes US Warships, and a book of Warships of the Soviet Navy, a stack of scrap balsa, pencils, paper, ruler, calculator, and my trusty x-acto knife I went to work. The project never got completed, I didn't build American cruisers, the ex WW2 battleships and super carriers, or get down to building Soviet destroyers and frigates. All in 1/3000 scale.
