Superb build IMHO - I really admire the tones and weathering - spot on.

Certain of my "Coastal" colleagues will laugh - but what did you use for the insulators (uniformly sized and rounded!)?

The Case really sets it off

One to be proud ofB)

An absolutely superb build. If this is your first ship you must carry on, as I'm sure future builds will amaze us even more! Agree with Rob on those weathering tones, subtle and realistic, spot on indeed.

 

Well done.

They were made from PVA dabbed on with a cocktail stick! 😊

Dead lush that is: your eye just gets pulled from one detail to the next. Colour and lighting are superb in combination. Bravo sir!

hello, you have a beautifully crafted model, perfectly polished, I like it very much, I have not seen such a thing here. I do not care about modern combat ships, I can not do much about them, I rather do sailboats.

Wish I'd never seen this, but with Warspite in the header I was hooked. I can't afford it, I haven't the room for one or the skills to build one but after seeing this one, I so want one.  :( It looks fantastic. :)

Possibly the best ship model I've come across - definitely the best Warspite one.

 

Particularly enjoy the weathering and matt finish.

 

Been given this kit for Christmas and I'd be happy if it looks 70% of this!
