So just a teaser for now while I get the story sorted out and I wait for a box from Squadron  ;)

Its my usual 1/700 ships.  Any guesses?

Close...  Repulse had a sister, and which Baltimore;) 

Hint:  The battlecruiser will be flying the ensign of the RAN in this little alternate world.

Story is coming along nicely.  Will post as soon its all typed up.  Box from Squadron arrived to add a DD to the scene if I feel that ambitious later in the build.  Box also brought another pair of cruisers that will go along with the build but will fit into another GB later on.

I have a Renown sitting my stash that I plan to do as RAN as well, its such a sensible, probable wiff.  It would have been logical, based on WWI experience to have reinforced the RAN up to a fleet unit again with the addition of a battlecruiser and possibly a carrier.

Alright well this obviously never got off the ground.  I did however map out what I wanted Renown to look like.  If I can pull it off tomorrow I'll post up a profile of her after her US refit in RAN colors.

I'm working on a nice neat back story for a lot of my RAN stuff.
