Destroyer!

I have a mind to build a card model of a destroyer in 28mm scale, for a planned Rocketman campaign I expect to run some time in late 2010. She shall be called ┼×ahin, built in Italy just before World War One, on behalf of the Ottoman empire, and to the design of an eccentric Ottoman admiral. Currently the hull is planned to be 120 x 18 cm. Subsequently I am researching destroyers and similar vessels trying to find inspiration for a ship which didn't exist but which might have; a destroyer but with the sponsons usually associated with heavier ships.

There is something about those early ships isn't there? The Yanks did make some good looking ships.

Heavy metal warships have a presence modern warships lack I think. Modern warships can be beautiful, but they seldom have the menace of those dreadnought era monsters.

They're both eclipsed by the beauty of sail ships though
