Unless somebody comes up with the money the ship is good as sunk... too bad. Seems some people like it to sink because it represents American imperialism. History is history and we wouldn't be where we are today because of it.
I read in another forum that the US Navy has sent word to "Reasonably Dispose" of the ship. It comes from the org itself.
"Reasonably Dispose" I think that means to get the USS Missouri and ram the USS Olympia (since nobody cares about history anymore) or let the Spanish government to blow it up (seems our government likes to apoligize for everything these days) or something...
I always loved the design of these ships, everytime I play monopoly I always use the ship piece. lol

Very, very sad that it's got to the point it's at. I really hope that it can be saved and not be sunk or scrapped. There are few enough historic ships left, no it would be a very, very sad day to see this ship gone.
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
