Hi Gary,

Actually my little Ise was a Bandai model from the 1980s (although I understand that Aoshima has been re-releasing this line of ships recently.)

Thanks for setting up this fun campaign!

Ise is finished.


It is just a basic, out-of-the-box build, and this 1980s-era kit has been surpassed by the 1/2000 F-Toys release and even the GHQ wargaming version in 1/2400... but it’s good to get one last ship out of the yard before 2017 is out.

Happy New Year!

Almost out of time, the basic colors are on!

I just have to paint the decks, details, and attach the guns and catupults.

Nice one, Lap Man! The Sheffield looks ready to defend the Falklands! Are you going to put her to sea?

I too seem to be running out of time this year...

My Ise build is coming along. Although there is no running gear, I've attached two tiny rudders that were provided.


The previously prepped the subassemblies went aboard quickly; the stand was taken from an old Revell 1/720 scale kit.

Now to get some paint on her!

Hi Guys,
You've been posting some excellent work here during the campaign. I hate I was never able to get started back on my USS Tacoma....I only completed one campaign all year. Too much real life this past year. I'm hoping 2018 is a better year for us all.
I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
John



Hi John,
Too bad you couldn't get back to your Tacoma build - 'real life' does have a habit of intruding on our model building plans! Thanks for the wishes, and may your 2018 afford you more happy bench time as well!

Bandai’s Ise hull came in three pieces with the two-part underwater portion molded in red. The fit was none too good, and it required an annoying amount of filling and sanding for such a small model – which is what led to my abandoning the build!

Anyway, with the hull now squared away, she’s ready for further assembly and paint.

Here is my last minute start for the ‘Dry Docked Campaign’!

With less than three weeks to go, I’m picking up a model I bought MANY years ago (I’m thinking 1980s..!)

I started and abandoned work on this tiny 1/2000 scale IJN Ise battleship/aircraft carrier some time after that and managed to assemble the major components before getting bored with it and putting it away.

In the intervening years the stand and masts have been lost, but it appears otherwise complete.

Here is the Trafalgar with another coat of Tamiya NATO Black. I hope to smooth the finish by brushing some thinner over it. Then there is a walkway on the spine in Flat Black and the masts in Silver.

The base needs some more Gloss Black then some dry brushing with Gold over the letters.

Alright, I'm new here, However this is the perfect ribbon for me, I have a kit that has been in "dry dock" for quite awhile (and....its fairly fitting) Half Assembled and been giving me the evil eye for it.

I give you the Airfix 1:350th Type 45 Air defense destroyer. I think Im gonna model HMS Dragon, (because I love the art on her Bow)
My plan is to use her for my first ocean diorama....a daunting task for me, but...I want to take a stab at it anyway. Thankfully I don't have to Frankenstein her as she is given in the waterline option. (lucky me!)



Edit: And here I am today as of November 4th

We are approaching the 2 month mark. Remember that you might not have enough time for modelling because of the holidays!
