I've built this one as well and it's a great model and well designed. But your work on it is fantastic! I'm amazed at the quality of your work in this small scale!
Well done!
Chris

Beautifully executed. What is its actual measurement in 1/250 scale?

Great build. I have looked @ this vessel many times, but you seemed to really capture the look. Look forward to seeing more of you work. The gun was just awesome.Rick
