Thank you again John for another great link. My build is mostly based on the John Roberts Anatomy of the ship Battlecruiser HMS Hood.

Lately I have been working on finishing details on the fourth level of superstructure and started fifth level. Some of the parts are insane. Here are two parts for 5th level and we are talking about part that is 3mm by 6 mm...

Here is the progress of the whole superstructure so far, levels aren't glue together yet since I am still working on some tiny parts for some levels.

I need to say that so far even the small parts are fitting great, and it is so much fun to work on those little details that will be so hard to see anyways :P

I think I understand now why my ship models never come out looking very good. I need to use your techniques!

After going over your thread it seems to me that building a ship model is like running a marathon! You keep on working steadily and with great perseverance. Amazing build, Olo, what an incredible details!

Regards,
Erik
