    Not a full tutorial but also quite nice:
    Look at the pictures of the guy's ship models and klick the button "English".

    Thank you very much for the two links ... I'm amazed at the models I see here I only wish I had the talent to work in card stock...
  5. Every so often this subject comes up at the ModelWarships site
    While the concensus seems to be they are worth the effort some of course don't. The major problem is of course the non-commonality of scales with the exception of wooden sailing vessels for the most part. A lot of the detail parts that are available ar either in 1/96 or 1/192 scale. I do remember seeing 1/192 cast 5" AA guns w/mounts for US pre WWII BBs. These would look great on Roman's revised Arizona done at 1/192. The scaling factor is 130.2%. But as one of us here has for a tag line. There is no right way, only what works.
