Intrepid Canadian Lester Rhetler laughed at the heat of the American South, as he made the long trek from Toronto, Ontario to Chattanooga, Tennessee in August 2019 to attend the 2019 US IPMS National Convention. This is Lester's build of the
German battleship,
SMS Konig, from the ICM 1:350 scale kit. The wooden decks are from Scale Decks and the photo-etch from Gold Medal Models. Lester added assorted cordage, chain and piano wire. The model was painted with Model Master
paints. Lester's last name might be Bhetler, as I took the name from the hand written entry form for the
Konig. Lester, if I misspelled your last name, my apologies. The last name almost is certainly Buckler, from the entry sheet of Lester's entry of the
RMS Mauretania.
