Brickmania’s 1/35 Scale USS Nicholas Featured on Beyond the Brick
I brought my newly completed 1/35 scale model of the USS Nicholas to Brickfair, Virginia in August. In spite of a savage mauling inflicted to the model during transit, the “Nick” was rebuilt and displayed, attracting a large crowd throughout the event. The guys at Beyond the Brick made this little video clip showing off some of the ship’s details.
The USS Nicholas was one of the most decorated ships in the US Navy during World War II, thus earning a place escorting the battleship USS Missouri into Tokyo Bay to accept the surrender of Japan, ending World War II. I am also planning to build the much larger battleship over the winter and display the two ships at commemorative events in 2015.
