East Coast Convoy Tanker
I've been running about all over the place today so only had time to assemble a Skytrex / Heroics and Ros 3000 ton coastal tanker for the Schnell Rules for Schnellboote project. This monster dwarfs the rest of the merchant shipping that I've collected together and I had to glue two laser cut mdf bases back to back to put it on, neatly making the joint at the half way turning point. I also replaced the stern mounted deck gun with one from the Tumbling Dice range. This looks a bit less miniscule and a little more like a proper DEMS 4'' gun, so much more scary for any 'have a go' torpedo boat commander. At some point soon, I'm hoping to start painting this lot up but who knows when that will be?
