Are these all scratch built?  The 1:700 craft is amazing.

Excellent work! Yes

Just a note, for those interested in HMVS Cerberus: a 1/250 paper waterline model is available as a free download from the UK firm Paper Shipwright. It's a real quality model...300+ pieces...with both colored or b/w outline parts as options. About 28cm/11" long when completed.

A great intro to the world of paper card models!

Very nice models. Keokuk only operated (for a short time) on the eastern Seaboard bretween her launch in New York City and her sinking in Charleston Harbor a month later so making the water blue would be more accurate.

The ship was piloted out of range of Fort Sumters guns after being riddled, by Robert Smalls, a 23 year old freed slave.

Smalls later served  in the US Congress representing South Carolina's 5th District until 1883. He was the last Republican to hold that seat until Mick Mulvaney won it in 2010.

Thanks, I had very little to go on and thought it might have been in some of the muddier rivers in the south.  I'll work on the water situation.

Maybe I should do the water over in a white or gray and then use a transparent blue with very little lighter highlights.

I didn't know about the congress thing either.

I think I might go after the Tecumsa next.  It sank in Mobile Bay not far from shore.

I can't seem to properly connect to that site.  I can see the page, but it is shaded very light, and I can't click on anything.

Don, I had the same problem when I first checked the link -- on my android phone, mind you -- but I was able to click the button on the greyed-out page and it added it to my cart anyway; when I then clicked on the cart, it came up 'clear.' (This was to prove to myself that it didn't require a login first, or something similar.)

Trying the same link I posted, about half the time (again, on my phone) it comes up 'grey,' other times the regular way. Same device, same network, same browser (and security settings), so I have no clue as to why one or the other.

I really wish I could supply a more useful answer. All I can suggest is to try again...try another device...or just email the site and see if they've got a workaround.

Here's hoping.... YesAngel

Very nice and very different. If I remember correctly, when the Cerebus was Commissioned, she was the most powerful Warship in the World at that time.....Cheers Mark
