I have been chatting with Goya about naval wargaming, as he expands his collection of 1/1200 WW2 ships. This has fired up my enthusiasm to dig out my half completed fleets and finally finish them off. My ships are 1/3000 scale by Davco.
Over the past few days I have based the outstanding models and painted them, creating two fleets. The first is German, led by the Battleships Bismarck and Tirpitz, with supporting battlecruisers, cruisers and destroyers:
My second fleet is British, built up around the carrier Illustrious, with Hood, Prince of Wales, the older Revenge and Ramillies, supported by cruisers and destroyers.
I have a few more German battlecruisers to complete as I ran out of long bases and I am awaiting a resupply.
