It’s just amazing how classy the interior details are. Amazingly impractical but stylish. 

I'm wanting to believe that the classy interiors were for the officers?  High ranking ones?   If the crew had them, there would have a been fight to join the fleet.

 

As for the toilet paper shortages... I don't get it.  The virus doesn't cause bowel or stomach problems.  I guess it's one of "follow the leader"... one person does it, brags on social media and everyone else follows.   There's tails of fist fights breaking out here in the States over the stuff.

Just goes to show how quickly civil society could dissolve if there was a real emergency. People are acting so stupid and cowardly.

Absolutely Daddy Rabbit, people go Primal pretty quickly and mobs are dangerous creatures. There is also a massive problem here of people buying up all the baby formula  they can and re selling it back to China. 
 

unfortunately it’s not going to stop any time soon

Emphasis on "real" emergency.... Well said!! The whole thing is so ridiculous.

Nobody believes that.... That sounds so simple, so it can't be true.

madness is setting in here too. Meetings cancelled, people forced to work at home, schools closing at first cough. 

Interseting chain reactions: scholl closing, kids at home, parents not being able to go to work (or asked to stay at home when the kids feeling not completely well)

On the bright side: plenty of space in the commuters train ;)

This might be the worst global pandemic since the spanish flu a hundred years ago so a certain level of alertness is advisable.

Northern Italy is a rather horrible example of how bad it can get very quickly. Still, hoarding toilet paper might not be the best solution :)

Erie County NY ran out of toilet paper, hand wipes, sanitizer, paper towels, bottled water, hand soap. THIS  is a County that knows how to hunker down when Lake Effect snow storms dump 7 feet of snow in 48 hours.  :o

 

NY State passed Seattle and California 2 days ago in number of cases, but majority are in NY CITY with one case up here in Ulster County. But NOOOOO cases west of Albany NY.   So Far !  My Epidemiology (PhD) daughter says best infectious disease control is containment, meaning cancel everything you can and keep people separated from each other, wash hands with soap and water frequently and don't touch your face.

Well, I think the mail from China is obviously sick, and I’m a bit stuck as I can’t progress as I have no idea what I need to do with the PE as there is no online instructions.  
 

might start Borodino

I've been hoarding the 1:350 Roma and a few detail sets. Your Heavy Cruiser Zara is tempting me to build the Roma.

Whether it's automobiles, ships, or even aircraft, (not to mention the beautiful women) the Italians make some sexy looking things.

So while I’m still awaiting the upgrade from China, I bought a spares set from HMS Exeter on. FB group, deck set, masts set and frets for $30; that’s about $15 US at the moment. 
 

I don’t intend on building her but the masts alone are with $30 and can swap out plastic ones.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
