  1. I took a little break from the other few models I am working on to figure out some geometry on them. In the mean time I was dinking around with the idea of converting Graf Spee into the Deutschland. Deutschland's more famous sister is in the game. You Know, Graf Spee. She is more famous due to the battle of the river plate and was scuttled there. 5 ships were planned with only 3 being built. Deutschland was finished first and then Admiral Scheer, and finally Admiral Graf Zeppelin. Deutschland had her name changed to Lutzow because of the war starting and Hitler was very afraid of Deutschland being sank, and then used as propaganda by the Allies. It wouldn't look good to have a ship named after the nation sank. When Deutschland was launched and even before it started much speculation and shock around the worlds navies. It was obviously built to commerce raid and was superior to any heavy cruiser in the world. The British were concerned that they could really only deal with these ships with a few battle cruisers. It was the British press that coined the phrase (Pocket Battleship) in reference to this ship. I also want to give a shout out to modeler Maxromash for the models and kit bash materials that considerably speeds up the modeling process. Its hard to see, but I moved the rangefinders on the turrets to match the earlier model that was on Deutschland.
  2. Out of curiosity, has anyone actually run Inertial Fuzes for High Explosives (IFHE) on 203mm guns, and is there any noticeable benefit to doing so? I'm asking because 0.8.2 is around the corner, and I'm considering specializing one of my Exeter captains toward brawling. You see, I play hyperaggressively with Exeter and often end matches with 15+ Secondary Battery Hit ribbons for ~400 damage. Most of the damage I deal with secondaries is against BB superstructures, and IFHE would open up penetration of 102mm secondaries to a much wider surface area on several ships from Tiers 4 through 7, BBs and CLs alike. My current captain focuses heavily on tracking enemy DDs and predicting torpedo attacks: While the extra heal from Superintendent is nice, I find that I rarely (if ever) have cause to use it (I run Damage Control Party II, Repair Party II, and Hydroacoustic Search II), and my aggressive play style means Radio Location is generally pointed straight at the nearest visible enemy - not exactly the most useful. At best, RPF is helpful late-game when hunting for the last DD or CV hiding out on the fringes of the map. Which brings me back to the question: does the 42mm penetration matter at all, or should I get AFT instead with this build: Note: The extra flak from AFT is of little importance to me because I still think flak relies too heavily on OpFor CVs' misplays to deal damage. I'm also considering keeping RPF, but again, it feels like it's not super relevant the way I play Exeter. (I'd never consider taking it off of more "conservative" cruisers like Furutaka or Aoba, though.)
  3. Hey, everyone! I take part in a club called the Southeast Attack Squadron (SAS), which is part of the International Radio-Controlled Warship Combat Club (IRCWCC) where we take 1/144 scale remote-controlled warships and go ham on each other's ships on a lake. I ordered an Aoba hull at the beginning of the year, and I figured it would be interesting to log my build progress on this forum. The hull arrived on Saturday 19/01/2019 and is a fiberglass Aoba-class hull made by Battlers Connection. While I was waiting for the hull to arrive, I went on Ebay and ordered a pair of 1/144 Aichi E13A "Jake" seaplanes from jsmwarplanes for her catapult. I'll be painting them the green and white pattern that the IJN favored for cruiser seaplanes. The tailfin serials I'll be using are DI-1 and DI-2 (which, as far as I can tell, represent CruDiv6's flagship). I'll keep posting as I make progress with her hull, propulsion, rudder, damage control, guns, and superstructure. Wish me luck. Cheers! Quick Update (03 Feb 2019): Two sets of 1/200 Aoba plans arrived today - 1941 and 1945 configurations. MIYUKIKAI does really good work and is always a pleasure to do business with. 10 February 2019 Update 14 February 2019 Update 24 February 2019 Update 15 March 2019 Update 07 April 2019 Update
  4. Exeter, I'm taking back everything negative about you that I've said with one exception: your 8.4-second rudder shift is still horrendous. Note: I accidentally used my 10-point Bert Dunkirk with DCF, LS, BFT, and CE rather than my 19-point Jack Dunkirk. Oops. 20190331_212705_PBSC505-Exeter_04_Archipelago.wowsreplay

    Alaska Spotted!

    I spotted the Alaska today, skippered by none other than LittleWhiteMouse. Could it be that LWM was testing the final configuration in preparation of her review of the soon to be released but ever elusive Alaska?
