Welcome to my blog. I have upwards of 100 projects in various stages of incompletion or total abandonment, so you may well find something of interest if you rummage about a bit (check out the Labels at the bottom of the blog). I concentrate on air and naval wargaming, but other 'skirmishy' things quite often pop up out of nowhere, only to disappear again after something else grabs my attention. I even finish the occasional project now and again!

Modern Naval Fast Attack
I'm wrapping up the MiG Alley / Bag the MiG project over the next week or so, leaving me free to do something a little bit different in the three weeks before the Easter break. I like the idea of some Soviet jet fighters in 1/600th scale, so I may well do that too, but it would be nice to have a bit of a break from air wargaming for a change.
I don't want to start anything big yet, so have been thinking about either finishing off some 1/600th scale merchant ships for WW2 coastal warfare or, perhaps, putting together a couple of small flotillas of modern FAC's in 1/700th scale, ready to use with the Naval Command supplement that is coming out at some point soon?
This is an old idea of mine, first 'thunked up' way back in 2012:
I found my box of Skytrex and PT Dockyard models yesterday which re-kindled the original idea, as well as having some pre-built Dragon Soviet FAC's that just need a quick re-paint and basing to be sorted. The idea would be to create two small forces for an 'Imagi-nations' conflict set either in the Far East or in Central America sometime in the '70's or 80's. I'll have to give it some more thought.
