WWII fleet

September 20, 2014

I know that’s still work in progress (WIP) but this micro world war II fleet by Paulo Castanho is an awesome work and needs to be shared!
All ships have a great level of detail, specially if we take into account the incredible small scale of 1/350.
Most of the MOCs were already built using real pieces. Be sure you take a few minutes to find them on his Flickr’s gallery ;)

Japanese Warships

Eínon presented a highly detailed naval display of Japanese warships. These ships are part of a fictitious history that he named “Second Russo-Japanese War” and took place in 1947, in a world where the Second World War never happened.

To War!

August 10, 2014

James presented this wonderful ship representing the arrival of King Richard at Acre during the Third Crusade.
I really like how James built the wooden hull of the ship! Well done and another great historical entry on the blog :)

To War!

Here’s the historical context given by James on Flickr.

1191AD, June 8, King Richard lands at Acre during the Third Crusade

The Third Crusade had begun after Saladin had conquered a great part of the Kingdom of Jerusalem. The Crusaders afterwards controlled only Tyre, Tripoli, and Antioch. A new Crusade is called by Pope Gregory VIII in October of 1187AD.

Richard had become King of England on 6th July 1198AD and began preparations to join the third Crusade. On his way to the Holy Land he fights in Sicily and Cyprus, gaining control of Cyprus an important Island for the Crusaders.

On arriving at Acre, he arranges a meeting with Saladin, and an armistice of three days is agreed so the meeting can take place. However, both Richard and Philip II of France fall ill. There is no meeting.

Afterwards Richard and his forces help capture Acre, despite his serious illness. Although sick from scurvy and being carried on a stretcher, he fights, picking off guards on the walls of Acre with his crossbow.

Maydayartist presented at Eurobricks this gorgeous colonial harbor.
He applied simple techniques but getting a brilliant result in the end!
Among all details I would like to highlight the cobblestone street that looks great.
