Christopher and I have been busy expanding the Japanese Fleet in my man cave over the last two days. We've built I-400, DD Hatsuharu, and DD Hatsushimo to add to our collection of waterline ships:

Here are the SS. Look at I-400 compared to the others.

Chris was really funny. WE built the two DDs today and, when completed, he stared at them and said....ahhh...wait a minute. Got up. Grabbed I-400 and said 'that thing is bigger then a destroyer!' Small lesson learned I guess.

Tomorrow we start IJN Chokai (Chris's choice) and IJN Kirishima (Dad's choice).

WOW! Don't know why the first picture is so big...

If you are staying home, what are you doing right now?

I'm keeping my store alive on life support, building models with the boys, and working on finishing our pond/stream/waterfall in preparation for a small garden railroad.

Waterline ships? You could at least do an SS with just the periscope showing. You could claim to have a whole fleet of submerged SSs. That's what I'm going to do.

Chris wrote a paper on IJN Yamato for 8th Grade American History Class. Got a 95%! (That's my boy)

Now that he is enjoying doing the waterlines...he wants Dad to buy it so we can build it. Damn. It will take forever...not to mention I'll need another blue shelf on the wall.

I've already completed one of my own. Here is SS-292 Devilfish. The water is brown because it's in an estuary after a flood.

When you finish your sub fleet, will you invite neighbours over to watch the submarine races?

What is that Juksto or Jukstg device? Is that what you use to contact your Gornian Central Committee controller?

I am working from home. On the bright side, my primary customer is staying open and keeping us busy, because it's the Dept. of Veterans Affairs. On the down side, I am in sales, and they are not buying ANYTHING right now if it isn't directly related to COVID 19, and software with a 6 to 12 month implementation cycle is....a non-starter right now.

All of my fellow salespeople are worried because if customers can't or won't buy anything, why do you need salespeople?

Weirdly enough , the Royal Navy station on Gibraltar used to have a couple of supper powerful mounted binoculars with a silhouette chart on the wall behind it with most of the world's periscopes on it. You might not get the exact boat , or even her class, but certainly the nation of manufacture. And as modern subs ALWAYS put up ESM , RADAR and com masts as well , you can more often than not ID the subs class.

Guessing this is from the era when submarine turbines weren't powerful enough to fight the underwater currents at above a walking pace.

First week working entirely from home here. Instead of going out, treating myself at home.

Ah....exactly how fast do you think submarines go when passing trough a narrow choke point? ALL subs, nuke , diesel and AIP ALL slow waaaay down when going through a narrow restricted passage. I've spent a fair bit of time operating in the STRAUB (straights of Gibraltar) and I can attest to this. Any sub trying to pass through covertly will certainly pass through at minimum speed.

but Bernard Herrmann sure helped Hitchcock!
