I had been watching the build, but missed the final result, so I'm glad the thread has resurfaced.

Talking about techniques learned in the process... could you please explain how you manage to scale yourself down to 1:350, do the job then rescale yourself up to human size?

Never seen anything like this... breathtaking. Bravo!

As all have said here, cracking museum display this is.

Fantastic display is all I can say. (I am a poet and did'nt know it).

You can be proud of this one Andrew. :winkgrin:

Absolutely amazing craftsmanship. There isn't much more to say compared with 7 pages of praise. 5.5 years is long but the result speak for itself! Well done Andrew. I realy love the watermodelling.  I wish I could see it in person. Now I'm gonna go and spend a couple of hours reading the WIP thread. :)

And, finally someone convinced me to start my Nimitz. Thank you for sharing!!

I remember seeing this when it was first posted and it's just as impressive now - I particularly admire the rusting effects.

I have been drawn back to this thread so many times now and it is great to see new members discovering this work of art. On a sombre note read what the ships and their men were going into.

Its a long thread but an insight into the Falklands war.on the lower decks was like from a nineteen year old Sailor.

I've just seen this for the first time and it really is remarkable. Congratulations on a really amazing work of modeling art. I don't mind saying this is probably one of, if not the, best models I think I've ever seen.

Same for me - I can only agree.

Stunning work

Wow. I have to say that this is the best model of any type that I have seen, ever. The attention to detail is mind boggling. The sea looks incredible and the whole thing looks like photographs of the real thing. Awesome.
