The Duke's Shipyards Launches another Ship in November

Post by Duke Maddog »

After some time, my shipyards have launched another ship. This one is the Trumpeter 1/700 scale Italian RN Vittorio Venetto battleship:

My apologies for the blue tint here. Apparently the background helped blue this out.


This is is just in time for my club's theme for this month: Axis warships of WWII.


Thank you for looking in, comments are welcome.

Beautiful build Mark! Even the name sounds as cool as she looks! You have a contender there with this one for this month at IPMS! You didn’t go with the red & white striped bow deck air ID markings on her?

Looks great Mark. I'm not a ship builder but I have a 1/700 kit in the stash (HMS Glowworm) and I hope I get close to what you've done here.
Thanks,
John

Thank you guys! I appreciate this so much!

Thank you Carlos! Yes, she is a beautiful ship; the first Italian ship in my collection. They sure built them pretty back then! I do hope it is a contender, but then I'm up against Sean Fallesen so.....

No, there's no red and white stripes on this one. Her sister Roma had them, and I have that in my stash somewhere too. Sean even gave me masks to paint the red and white stripes.

Thank you John! I'm sure with your skills you might even surpass me!

Thank you Mike!
