Just picked up the Trumpeter 1/200 scale USS Hornet the other weekend, and the lower hull is one piece and it's about 4.5 feet long.  Whether or not Reaper would have access to the same manufacturer in China that Trumpeter uses, obviously I have no idea.  It's certainly going to be an expensive set of molds, that's for sure!  I suspect it'll get broken into quite a few sections.  I seriously doubt it'll be a 'pull out of box and play' option.

I honestly do not see much use for a "straight out of box" product. I'd much rather have it require assembly, so as to be easier to produce, modify, and make modular as well.

Youngster.

I started in college [after 6 years active duty in the US Navy] with White Box and self ablating dice.

GEM :lol:

Counting Heroquest I started when I was 6! :lol:

 

Our kiddo doesn't have long before she gets her own, non plushie, dice. She already has three full sets of stuffed polyhedral dice! ::P:

 

Gawd, I never realized how fast children grow up.

Hubby thinks it would be good to have two of these. Just in case for ship to ship battles :rolleyes:

 

i mean, anything else of this size for the cost is going to be a pain in the tushy to put together. I’ve seen those kits. They’re more obnoxious looking than the barge decor.

Both of us want two ships, so that means we need four, right?

 

Purple, but a very reluctant purple. It is so EASY to picture all of us crawling around the floor, playing with our toy boats. Me, Grump, BD, Jon, Julie, and Trouble. All of us going Boom! Boom! Boom! ::D:

Wherever one makes room for it.  Hubby said he has no interest already, but I want it... And crewed by otters! 

 

Amazing what an airbrush can do - the CAV dropship was airbrushed by someone over the course of a weekend, for example. 

 

Something that gorgeous?  Oh yeah, room will be made for such a beauty! 

 

This and the CAV dropship.... Which will we get first, ooooooooooh... :p /ghost noises

 

A dire otter! 

 

Name the otter crewed ship The Brandy Tree.

Good luck finding a copy... I really liked that version too. 

I take it back... apparently it's only $9 on the big river?? I went looking for it years ago, and the only copies were stupid expensive. Woohoo!!

*clicks add to order*

 

Ours is in a paper slip cover, we got it from Family Dollar.

 

It was hard to find, not to buy, we had it slipped between two DVDs and couldn't FIND it! Then I pulled out Muppet Treasure Island, and there it was.

 

Muppet Treasure Island is ALSO wonderful! :lol:

 

We have four versions of Treasure Island, and only Muppet Treasure Island was originally mine. We have  a LOT of pirate movies.

On the topic of rear guns on the frigate, now that we are seeing other packs of naval usable cannon from other sources, it will not be hard at all to upgrade the firepower.

@PaganMegan check out the rules for Lego Pirate Ships for combat, they were build your own and very fun games.

That’s an average of about $130 per pledger, if I haven’t slipped a decimal place on my trusty slide rule. :poke:  So there’s plenty of scope for increase of pledge amounts as well as pledge numbers. 
 

 

 

I'm only in for the core box amount right now.  Got a couple of other KS going right now so it's looking like an expensive month.  Much as I'd like to up it, it'll probably wait till later in the PM for that.
