SMML Con
USS Hornet
22 April 2001

I photographed these models at the 22 April 2001 IPMS contest held in conjunction with SMML Con aboard USS Hornet, Alameda, California. I was limited both by time and the memory capacity of my digital camera, so there are many excellent ship models missing from this page. A few of them, like Sami Arim's 1:700 HMS Hood, #2, #3, #4, #5, #9 and Jim Gordon's 1:350 IJN Battleship Yamato already reside in the Steelnavy.com Model Gallery. But too many excellent ship models are missing. The fault is entirely mine and no slight is intended. Next time I'll be better prepared.
