    Update from WG Fest: Soviet Battleships line

    By that magnificent logic, Yamato and Musashi should immediately be overflown by a hundred bombers upon loading in, and explode. The Italians had capable ships; their willingness to use them has absolutely no bearing on their design. Moreover, are you going to now claim that Soviet WW2 sailors were some pinacle of skill, training, tactics and resolve? Because, if that's the case, I have several slightly used bridges in the NYC area that you may be interested in purchasing...

    I recently did an NZR KA class.

    PSA: Potential Free Santa Crates

    It's funny that even the "giveaway" isn't assured. Have a very merry cashmass.

    Post your 2018 Crate Haul....

    Lucky? He bought one hundred mega crates. That's almost $400 worth of chances. So, yeah, if that's "paying off" or luck, bully for him.
  6. Reality or not (and we know, of course, that it is [and, if anything, that this year might be worse than others]), given the current hardening political viewpoint of microtransactions - increasingly seeing them as little more than gambling - I think it's a bit of an... odd... choice to showcase a couple of dice in that advertisement. Just my two cents, but... maybe that's not what you want to emphasize there, Wargaming?

    Yup. I do my best to follow the details of prototypes whenever possible.

    I did a 4-8-4 instead :P. A warbaby: https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/168909-moc-southern-pacificwestern-pacific-gs-6-4-8-4-warbaby/

    Yeah, I was surprised how well that part of it came together. I'll have to sit down and think a bit about what I want to do next. Nothing is really coming to mind immediately. I'd like to do something else on the small(ish) side - I'm kind of crapped out on huge locomotives at the moment.

    Today I did an Indiana Harbor Belt 0-8-0: https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/168887-moc-indiana-harbor-belt-0-8-0/

    I never thought her streamlining was particularly good. I'm also not an enormous fan of 4-8-4s in general - I feel like they too often get chosen over alternatives when it comes to restoration. It seems like every year you read about another Northern being restored somewhere. Meanwhile, the vast majority of 4-6-4s, 2-8-2s, etc. rot as static displays. Here's tonight's effort: an ATSF 4-6-4: https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/168872-moc-atsf-3450-class-4-6-4-hudson-3451/

    I'm kind of off narrow gauge at the moment, though I am sure it will spark my interest again in the future. I actually am not a fan of the 611. I may eventually do the 4449, but, as you can imagine, it's a rather popular locomotive, and a lot of other people have already done it. I was, however, considering a N&W S1 class 0-8-0.

    I did another last night - it was an experimental high pressure Canadian Pacific 2-10-4.

    Thanks! I did one more tonight - a GP30. Took about 8 hours, and the entire affair - from start to finish - was absolute hell.
