Started to reorder the huge amount of naval documentation I collected over the years in a new, more complete and ordered site (my old one is http://xoomer.virgilio.it/bk/).

The site will be organized in sections:

Maritime Museums (enormous collection of pictures I collected worldwide over the years)
Never Weres (articles and drawings)
Naval articles (from Italian not so widespread docs and other sources)
Warship models (a few of mine and others)

focused on the 1906-1950 timeframe, opened to external contributions. I decided to use wordpress as technology as the boards, while being of invaluable value, tends to abruptly disappear (some of us survived four incarnations of the warship project board, the knowledge available there did not). Furthermore, I hope the comment technology in wordpress will help to keep discussions and informations focused on the single warship design in the article.

The new site address is: The new B&K site: https://stefsap.wordpress.com

Thanks for you attention.

Stefano, I remember talking with you when I built my Roma, and have since looked at your site several times.

I just clicked on your link and the silhouette of the Italian battleship made me gasp.. Bellisima, bellisimo, splendida! :jump_1:

The website itself is interesting and the models are fascinating. Quite a collection!

P.S.
Your "grandfather" looks good, too. :thumbs_up_1:

What a great website. I had been unaware of it until today. The Impero design study is very interesting. Do you know what guns would have been in the mounts fore and aft of the island? Thank you very much for a fascinating and informative site.

Thank you Michael; more to follow :). They are the 4 3*152 turrets provided for any Vittorio Veneto class BB. I will write a short article about the way that model was identified not as an RN Aquila variant, but as an Impero conversion study. Source is "Storia Militare".

Stefano,

I can only echo "Great Website". Always nice to have another resource and your subjects are well chosen. Not material easily found elsewhere. Particularly enjoy the Italian Navy topics.

Best wishes and many thanks,

Mac

Thanks, Mac! More to follow, the Regia Marina is not well covered in English language, trying to fill some gaps :).

Added two of the three Ansaldo's "Super Washington" cruiser design for the Armada, and the 1912's Diesel Battleships designed by Junkers. I believe all of them would be great modeling subjects! :D
