I've got a question about a particular type of ship. I've got the mini and I'd like to get a Reacher base for it but I need some stats. It's the Luftwaffe Seaplane tender Bussard. Here are the real ship's stats...
Launched 1940 Completed 1942 Weight 2040 tons Dimensions 98.3 m x 14.0 m Engines Two 8-cyl diesels, 2 Voith-Schneider propellers, 1800 hp, 12 knots Range, nautical miles 5800 at 12 knots using 230-tons oil, 8800 at 10 knots Armament Three 20mm AA (2 more added later) Catapult equipment One 20-ton crane, One 20-ton Heinkel catapult for Do 18, Do 24 and BV 138, 120 tons aircraft fuel Crew
Okay based on this, I estimate the ships hull values as follows...
AA of what 2?
What do you think? Oh, I'm posting it here because it doesn't look like much is happening on the cards thread.
Some cards have been done for this and Falke on the other forum. I looked through the custom cards section around the time of the last shapeways sale to try and get a grip on what cards have been done, that have printable minis. Someone did a load of german/Italian stuff including aircraft/installations and these were done. I was looking particularly for a Bremse card to go with the frozen seas Brummer & Trygvasson cards, which make a mini set but couldn't find one.
Hope this helps.
