Hello ;) Hmmmm... Usually in spurts, maybe build 3+ in a few days then just modify them for a month or two.

Thank you! We originally built these in favor over the 1:484 ships due to the fact that they use a far fewer amount of pieces, <100 compared to >500 to even a thousand parts for a 800 foot plus CV or BB. That is a big problem when you don't order parts or buy hundreds of dollars of Legos every year but still want to have and work on multiple 14" plus fighter jets. In fact, the last 1:484 ships we had were taken apart (along with a few Mega Bloks Eurofighter sets) to start making aircraft. After a few months, we were kind of missing some of our ships but didn't want to destroy any aircraft to build them. After some thought, we decided to try to build a ship or two of a smaller scale. In less than a week, we had nearly 15 ships on 2 shelves and no less planes than we had before. Also from what you said, it simply confuses me when nearly every ship I look at is large (more than 2 feet long, some bigger than a car) says one reason that the ship is so large is to fit detail. Certainly the 1:484 ships we used to have were more detailed (by the way, I wouldn't put the 1:484 ships in the "large" category) put I think these small vessels have plenty. Hopefully I will get a chance soon to post the rest soon. You can check our main page for a list of what I haven't posted.

I really like these micro scale warships, so small and yet so detailed!
