An introduction- Jim Baumann's model shipping.

11th September 2009, 19:46

I have been a lurker in these forums for a while- so I thought I would take the plunge and say hello!.

My main interest is building model ships in a small scale; 1/700 and occasionally 1/350 or larger.
The full extent of my madness can be seen here:

The reason for building in such a small scale is that I can have lots of them !!!---in glass cases around the house without destroying domestic harmony!
There is a limit to how many 1/96 scale models one can have.....

I look forward to being a part of this forum
