    53339

    I have always used this primer on my islands and plastic forts. It doesn't seem to affect styrene, but does eat unprotected foam (white glue protects the foam).

    This just arrived from Brigade Miniatures. It will be my Fort McHenry. I don't really foresee square riggers dueling in inner city Baltimore, but I've kind of started viewing this hobby...

    I'm glad you like it! It is 2 layers of 1/8" foam with adhesive backing that I got from a craft store. Do you have Walmarts in England? How far has the scourge spread?

    Perhaps read through the Solo Campaigns under Campaign Discussions for an idea of the kind of adventures that you favor. That will guide you toward the ships that you'll want/need.

    Yep, thanks for posting, Chris! I think I'm going to like the frigate. I always thought the Ares one looked beamy.

    I hope you have seen "The Court Jester", with Danny Kaye? It has Basil Rathbone in it too, and a fencing scene that is hard to beat.

    I'm using the stern windows that came with the model, just gently sanded to fit. If you shave across the forward edge of the roundhouse/poop deck, that gets you inside the back of the model and...

    Here at the top of the Chesapeake all we have are crab shacks. I imagine you don't want those, ie; Captain So-and-so's Crabs (they do sell beer, so it's kind of a pub).

    I love the look of 16th and 17th ships, but when I think of sailing characteristics and firing rates, I think it would be hard to find willing playmates.

    Not liking the strange poop decks on the Hebes and following Jonas' lead, I continue to modify old hulls to be flush decked. One day these will get masts.
