Wings and Wakes of War

Another weekend of busy family stuff and occasional painting. There's a clutch of 1/600 ACW drying on the workbench, but the Hansa Brandenbergs and the CMBs are finished at last.

I'm working on a Wings of War scenario using these. the CMBs aren't fixed to the sea bases. Instead they are removable so that the models can be shown at speed (with the base) or slow /stationary (without).

For those who like to know these things the aircraft are from Riviresco, the boats from Rod Langton


  1. I have a few of the Langton WW1 range. I've been wondering what to do with them for a long time.

    Some sort of Kronstadt type thing seems the obvious way to go?

    Nice paintwork :O)

  2. The planes and ships look really good.

    Did you use the lozenge pattern decal set from Reviresco for the planes or did you get them somewhere else?

    I'm looking forward to hearing about the game rules as you figure them out.

  3. The lozenges are decals. Even the idea of trying to paint those made my head explode - let alone actually doing it :)

  4. Hi DM,

    Really nice - I love those floatplanes! I will be intrigued to see how the game pans out when ready.

    BTW, email me re a spare Fort Sahara! (

    All the best,
