Thank you to my Secret Santa!!!

Well the gifts are all unwrapped and I must say I am very happy with my gift from my Secret Santa!

From the GHQ Website

Thank you for the GHQ King George V Battleship miniature! It will be painted up as the HMS King George V.  I have painted up her sister ship HMS Prince of Whales.

My painted version of HMS Prince of Whales

This will be a great addition to my WWII Naval collection!

I also got a great gift from my Fiance Cathrine, She got me a Gold Membership to the Vasa Museum here in Stockholm! It is a great gift and I am very glade to be able to go to this amazing museum free at any time during this coming year. If you would like to know about the Vasa or the membership check out the information here: Friends of the Vasa

The Vasa on my second visit to the museum, I have been here 3 times so far.

In two years I will be able to go on board the Vasa! Wow that will be a memorable day!!

Scale model of the Vasa!

Again Thank you to my Secret Santa!!
I hope to find out who you are!
Merry Christmas!!!
