WWII Fleet Extras

Here are 16 more ships to fill in each navy that I've done so far. 

Five German ships:

  • Gneisenau battle cruiser 
  • Prinz Eugen - Hipper class heavy cruiser
  • Blücher - Hipper class heavy cruiser 
  • Graf Spee - Deutschland class heavy cruiser 
  • Admiral Scheer - Deutschland class hevy cruiser 
Six British ships:
  • HMNZS Achilles - Leander class light cruiser 
  • HMS Ajax - Leander class light cruiser
  • HMS Sheffield - Town class light cruiser 
  • HMS Dorsetshire - County Norfolk sub-class heavy cruiser 
  • HMS Norfolk - County Norfolk sub-class heavy cruiser 
  • HMS Cumberland - County Kent sub-class heavy cruiser
Five Japanese ships:

  • IJN Soryu - Aircraft Carrier
  • IJN Hiryu - Aircraft Carrier
  • IJN Kaga - Aircraft Carrier
  • IJN Akagi - Aircraft Carrier
  • IJN Shokaku- Aircraft Carrier
These should round out the three fleets.
Next I'll be concentrating on the US fleet. I haven't found many freebees in the US ships. So I will most likely have to make some more purchases, like I did with this lot.

You continue cranking out super looking ships! The buck looks rather curious. Great expression.

Haha, well it helps when the days are just too hot or too smokey to go outside to work. Those are great excuses to stay inside and play in the shipyard.

Lovely work again Vol. You really have a rapid production line going at the moment.

Haha, well they're a lot easier than rigged sailing ships, so...

Plus I'm only doing basic paint for all ships, rather than the beautifully authentic camo paint schemes your ships exhibit. Yours are inspirational!

Between you and Lawrence I’m serious starting to think about WWII naval stufff.

Well have to convince Jonathan to have you over and me on the computer to have a go at it. Once your fleets are done. 😀😝

Now that sounds like a great idea!
