    International "BigGun" Pages


    Western Warship Combat Club

      One of the "Big Three" American "Biggun" clubs, this one located the San Francisco Bay Area. These chaps go very much their own way on rules, so AusBG members need to be careful about taking advice on this site too literally. That said, its a good site and these guys have a great time. They list more than 40 operational warships and their website contains their rules, officers, ship and frequency lists, meeting schedule and directions as well as their photo collection. These guys really have some great looking boats !

    Mid-Atlantic Battle Group
      Speaking as a webpage designer, this is a beautifully constructed home page and has obviously had significant thought put into it. It is the home page of the main "US East Coast" biggun club, the "Mid-Altantic Battle Group". Despite the name, this group is not based in the mid-Atlantic but instead appears to be in Virginia. They have been battling for a while now, including visiting the MBG to really give their boats a try out. A credit to its webmaster. Ignore the weird colour cast of the thumbnail photos, the full sized pictures are quite good.

    North Texas Battle Group
      The excellent home page of the large "biggun" battlegroup, the "North Texas Battle Group" a fully operational group holding regular meetings.
      Well worth a visit, especially for the those who want to build a warship.

Jim's Model Warship Combat Page

      Another personal site from a member of the Midwest Battle Group. This one has details of the Japanese Heavy Cruiser Mikuma, the Italian Battleship Roma and the large American Carrier USS Midway. It also has a tribute to Bill Newbauer, the main source of "Indiana" style cannon for many years and a selection of printable flags. These are *.WPS files and what software you need to print them is currently unclear.
