That’s pretty funny, Robin. Sometimes judges have no sense of humor.
So, do I understand the campaign requirements correctly? The model has to be of a ship in it’s sunk state, not just of a ship that was sunk? If so, this is WAY beyond my skill level.
When I first read this thread, I was reminded of when I was first getting back into modeling. It was the mid-1990s, & I was living in Central Massachusetts. I was starting to get an interest in 1/700 model ships, and would go to some shows local IPMS with a friend of mine. One day we were hanging out at a show, looking at the ship models, when it dawned on us that many (not all) of the really famous ships were sunk. Think about it. RMS Titanic, sunk; Bismarck, sunk; USS Arizona, sunk; Yamato, sunk. Well, you get the idea. Other then a few that have been turned into museums or scrapped, a lot of famous ships are on the bottom. So, we came up with this crazy idea for a model ship hobby shop (remember this is pre-Internet) called On The Bottom Hobbies. It never came to fruition obviously, but I thought you might enjoy the story.
I do have an HMS Ark Royal in the stash, but I don’t think I have the skill or talent to model here “on the bottom”.
