SMS Goeben and Moltke

As I was getting tired of Landsknecht and read some navy-related stuff, I thought I could do something very different, and built this pair of German battlecruisers. The hull is from balsa, the rest is various pieces of wood and a Perry spear shaft.

They are rather big compared to most of my pre-dreadnoughts, but perhaps I will build more WW1 era ships in the future.

I used a darker undercoat, a light brown wash and two layers of highlights this time instead of the usual method, and I think this one works better.
