I decided to build a fleet of 1:6000 miniatures for the reasons of cost,and scale. I have limited experience painting miniatures, but read up on some techniques and research some paint schemes. I thought I'd share what was possible with a small amount of skill and effort...

First Picture:

Scharnhorst, as per Battle of North Cape 1943, leading Gneisenau depicted at time of the "Channel Dash".

Second Picture:

Prinz Eugen leads Bismarck through the Denmark Strait in 1941.

Third Picture:

German Battleline, Bismarck again, leading Tirpitz (depicted in 1942 scheme while threatening convoy PQ-17) in the foreground, Scharnhorst and Geisenau again in background.

Fourth Picture:

Bismarck, Tirpitz, Scharnhorst and Geisenau again, with Prinz Eugen (foreground), and Seydlitz (hypothetically completed Prinz Eugen type CA, was convertyed to a carrier and never completed).

Fifth Picture:

U.S.S. Indiana, BB-58 during 1944 in Measure 32/11D. The Indiana was the only ship of the South Dakota clas ever to carry the "dazzle" scheme.

Ships from, Strange Cargo, Paints from Synder & Short. I researched each ship pretty carefully, they are as accurate as I can determine and painted in authentic colors.

My opinion is that with a little work and nominal expense, a nice looking fleet is pretty easy to assemble at this scale...I'm up to almost 100 painted ships now!

Nice looking ships there Christopher!

If interested, please feel free to submit a Tutorial article or create a blog to detail your ship painting.

Very much looking forward to seeing more ships! :D

I really love the 1/6000 models. I have close to 400 WW1 models, and really enjoy working with them.
