The Duke's Shipyards Launch Three More Ships

Recommended Posts

Here are the latest ships to come off the slipways at my shipyards.

To start, I finished up the USS Bootes AK-99 Liberty ship. This is the 1/700 scale Pit Road kit:

Next is the third Japanese subject being delivered to my Japanese Forces. this is the 1/700 scale Pit Road kit of the Japanese Oiler Erimo. I built her because she was eavesdropping on US Navy communications but the US Pacific Fleet during exercises a few weeks before Pearl Harbor. Sneaky little devil here:

Finally, both of these ships are being escorted by my latest British destroyer the HMS Daring on their shakedown cruises. This is the 1/700 scale Dragon kit of one of Britain's newest ships:

Okay, that's all I have for now. Thanks all for looking in, comments are welcome.

Thanks EJ! I'm glad to have them join the fleet. You have a considerable line up going on in your shipyards; have you got in progress photos of them? I'd love to see a build thread showing all those as you progress on them.

Unfortunately, I lost most of my pics in any build logs I had going due to the Photobucket fiasco. I do have the photos, but they are stored in a portable hard drive. There are several thousand in there and I never saved them in folders, so they are all random, thousands of them. The  time to sort them would be significant and the time to repost them to a new hosting site, then repost them to the various forums would take even longer. I'd rather be building, so, the only ones I have taken the time to update are threads that I'm actually working on at present and posted on various forums.

Thanks for your interest though.

I really like following your work. You get more done in a week than I do in 2 months. You give me the push I need to get back to the bench.

Thanks EJ, I'm thrilled to know that I help keep you going. I fully understand about filing and sorting all those pics. No matter; I also would rather be building. Stay tuned, more to come soon.
