Hi Tomasso,

Have to agree with all the others, one very fine build and completed project. You did an excellent job of photographing your project and logically presenting it in stages as you have done. Looking forward to your next presentation.

Thanks a lot!

@Michael, the hull is certainly complex but well designed. For the waterline parts, the instructions suggested to build the bow and the stern as separate pieces putting together the respective starboard and port sections and to add them afterwards to the the bulwark framework (post #7, pictures 7 and following). This is always a difficult part in my opinion but this solution helps a lot to shape the parts correctly.

Regards,
Tommaso

TOMMASO,

What a great build! I have thought about building this kit with full lighting installed. Thanks for sharing with us. Your recomendation helps with the idea of aquiring this model. Great work!

By the way, the next model that I'm going to build is quite impressive and is also from HMV: stay tuned

Ok, but I have followed your builds of HMV models and I am sure, your build of this mighty ship will be a must see for anyone building her too.
Reguardless, I look forward to anything you do.
Rick
