That's pretty cool.  What game are these used for?  Got any action shots?  

 

Also, what are the actual physical dimensions?

 

There's a few games they can be used for, such as Harpoon or Shipwreck. My favorite is Naval Command, it keeps the feel of everything without getting bogged down in the details.

 

As for size...going off the top of my head, I believe everything from frigates up to cruisers are on bases roughly 5/8" wide. At the longest, Enterprise is just over 5.5" long.

 

Also, the only ships with decals for deck markings are Texas and Admiral Kuznetsov. All the others are painted on. Oddly enough, the carriers were among the least difficult to do in terms of makings...

Nice. How did you keep the lines so nice and even on the deck markings that you painted?  

 

Enough masking tape to play a Katamari Damacy LARP. I'm not kidding, by the time I was done, the tape used on Charles de Gaulle weighed more than the ship itself.

 

Circles are the hardest part. Eventually i found things i can use as stencils. For larger circles, I use the inside edge of notebook paper reinforcers. For smaller ones, stick-on rhinestones. About halfway through the painting process, Tonnere looked magnificent. :)

 

Oh, and Iwo Jima came with malformed masts, so the masts and radar platforms are scratchbuilt from staples and glue-reinforced paper.

Outstanding work! I blame my current modeling habits on my Marine grandfather’s penchant for warship and plane models. I think I’m trying to redeem myself for being a little too young to care about model painting.

 

 

Oof, sorry fellas I had a little breakthrough on the forums....lol.

      Some of y'all may remember going to school in the 80's in your brand new corduroy pants.

      I've previously posted Hasslefree's Velma analogue 'Louise' as a Miskatonic library assistant. High time I got the rest of the gang together.


       
      A cheap toy VW bus is key to this whole thing. The flowers and turquoise are my addition.
       

       

       
      We have Not-Fred-for-Legal-Reasons! (Barney, postapocalyptic version. No ascot, sadly, but a more dynamic sculpt.)

       
      Not-Daphne! (Felicity, also post-apoc version; she looks good with a bat)

       
      Not-Shaggy and his Great Dane! (Wolsey, standard version, and Hamlet; the box of SNAX I made from a chunk of sprue)

       
      And Not-Velma (Louise, featured in another post.)

       
      More turnaround pix:

      What sorts of shenanigans would these meddling teens get up to? and why would they be hired by the circus? (Obviously, the circus doesn't want or need the regular police, even if they could help with spooky crimes.)

      Shaggy would immediately volunteer to check out the midway, I think.
      "Hey Scoob! You ever had a turkey leg...wrapped in cotton candy?" 
      *doglike sounds vaguely approximating the phrase "Not yet!"*

       

       
      Daphne splits off to search for clues (there are plenty),
       
       

       
      Behold! A performer about to take a Louisville Slugger straight to the groin!

       
      Somebody has released the animals from the Beast-Tamer's act! 

       
      Good thing Barney knows how to make himself look big and loud, not like panther prey! That'll scare them off.

       
      Nothing beats legwork and research for getting to the bottom of a problem. Somebody's been embezzling and cooking the books, if Velma's calculations are correct (they are).

       

       
      Hope you enjoy...I certainly did!

      Speed paint job that I did as part of my 4th of July Paint Binge this year.  I was vaguely going for crazy Rutger Hauer from Blade Runner, with the white hair.

      My son's girlfriend stayed with us a week in the middle of May and I ran a Savage World WW2 horror one-shot.  These two american soldiers here was choices for one of the pre-generated characters I had ready, but he was not picked by any of the 3 players (my husband, my son and girlfriend).

      My son's girlfriend stayed with us a week in the middle of May and I ran a Savage World WW2 horror one-shot for my husband, my son and the girlfriend.  The nurse and doctor where the identical male and female versions of the same was one of the pre-generated character I had ready, and my son's girlfriend played the nurse.  Probably the most challenging character to play, since the character was a pacifist.  She did awesome though, came up with alternate ways to help in combat.
       
      Here is a photo of the 3 characters together, my son played the War Correspondent, represented by previously painted Max Decker, Private Eye (SKU 50051), my husband played the Guerrilla, represented by Ernesto, Revolutionary (SKU 50043)
