|All modelling in the War Room is in character.|
I've had a strange relationship with model kits. It's how I got into wargaming originally, and I had an extensive collection of 1:35 tanks at one stage. However, I lack the patience to do the really fine detail kits. A few years back I bought a U-boat kit, and turned it into a pretty simple diorama of which I'm very proud, but that's about it.
This kit comes off the back of a long-standing interest with the Imperial Russian Navy, fed by my regular games on World of Warships and our recent Russo-Japanese War Supercampaign with Paul. I'm only really interested in the pre-Dreadnought era, so the 1899 battleship Tsesarevich (Crown Prince) was a great find in 1:350 - usually quite an obscure ship.
