Tamiya 1/700 'O' Class Destroyer
I bought the 1/700 scale Tamiya kit of an 'O' Class destroyer today in a local model shop, with a view to converting one of the two hulls in the box into a 1/600th scale Kingfisher class escort sloop for East Coast convoy games. I don't know if this is worth the hassle, so I have also been thinking of just building the models as they are for 1/700th scale destroyer 'skirmish actions', using whatever simple rules I can adapt to the purpose. This would be ideal for club multiplayer games, with each player taking the role of a destroyer captain. Just a thought at the moment but I think there's lots of potential for some larger scale, low complexity, fast moving close action naval wargaming.
