    Hi Félix, I have yet to post them, but they are on their way. I will warn you, they are designed to use SoG ships, as I favor their shapes and scale the most.:happy:

    This is where the fight ended. Saratoga was taking a bit of a pasting, but the mizzen hit was promising. Had the fight continued, I would have worked hard to bring my undamaged port side into play.
