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.


  1. Wow, handmade micronauts. I bet that took some time and patience. Well done.

    1. Hi Jeff, ohh yes, looking up measurements, taking the pics and scaling them to 1/3000, it's a shame I never got to completing the project though :(
