Austro-Hungarian torpedo boat, built 1886.













This is why I was inquiring into A-H colours.

Looks good already, John. What plans are you working from?

Launch it! The Italian menace seems right outside the harbor!

Not there yet; I still have those annoying hatch hinges and locking mechanisms to do and about two weeks of painting.

Hopefully I will finish painting the hull this weekend; I still have to etch the handrails and install them.

I have a piece of teak from the deck of USS North Carolina that I will be using for the base.

Sounds good, but the Austro Hungarian empire can't suffer all these procurement delays. The people do, however, approve of your appropriating foreign materials where possible to minimize cost.

Another thing... the archduke wants to have it in the upcoming Viennese Oom-pah-pah Parade. You did get the memo with the requirement that it have wheels?

Looking forward to new photos.

What a funky boat. It seems almost like an up-ballasted variant of the Confederate Davids with its hullform.

That was the style for these boats; look at the drawing you have of the German Torpedo Boat.

The scale is 1:100. If I remember correctly, the boat was around 100'. I can't measure the model because I no longer own it (I'm short on cash at the moment).

Well, I finally got the rest of the photos off my camera where they'd been since the end of March.















The texture was intentional; I was trying to achieve the look of the steel of the period.

What do y'all think?
