The Z Plan


I have recently joined Theo here to post about all things gaming and modeling.  my main focus will be on the modeling side for now though.  So I thought I would put up my first post with an intro to a series of projects that I have kicked off to build German warships from WWII.  following the same process as the Germans did I have started small to re-learn the basics and will then move onto heavier units once I more comfortable with modelling at this scale.

So to give you the summary I have bought –

Z-39 DD

Graf Spee

Prinz Eugen


So far i have kicked off with the Z-39 and Graf Spee, completing the Graf Spee recently (more pics to follow) and moving on to the Prinz Eugen.  Having a lot of fun but I have to tell you photo etch in 1/700 scale is crazy to use.  Hand rail in particular are the bane of my modelling but getting better ship by ship.

Order of construction is

Spee – Eugen – Bismarck with bits of the DD along the way

I will keep you upto date with lots of pic as I go!

About Hugo

Long time gamer and model maker who after a 20 year absence is back in the chair. Loving going back to wargaming and building things. My main projects at the moment are naval in nature due to a love of World of Warships but I am branching out with some old models and also some new aeroplanes which were a big focus when I was youger (a lot younger!). Amazed at the quality of the new kits I have bought - seems Tamiya's quality of old has pushed all to make better kits. This has meant a steep learning curve in the area of photo etch and I will let you give me your feedback on the results.
