Truly amazing work and the build thread was soooo informative!

 

A build you should be extremely proud of!

I am particularly impressed by the weathering and wear around the waterline.  It adds so much character and life to the subject.

Quite superb Michael, as good a maritime model as I've see I reckon. Every view of the finished item has another fantastic wee detail leaping out at me & that is after following your build. :) Ok, so I've got a short attention span. :( :D

Thanks a lot for comments, It's a pleasure to read. I'm glad that you like it. I'm not going to attempt anything of this magnitude for some time. I need to rest, some ships in 1/700 or tanks in 1/72, to catch a breath before another job like this one.

Beautiful Mick!

 

Thats some project over 2.5 years - I’d lose patience way before that... Rigging is superb.

I've had the pleasure of watching this build all the way from day 1 and it's been a remarkable journey.

Superb modelling as ever, Mick. You've done a fantastic job of this magnificent example of French naval architecture at it most Jules Verne.

Thanks Dave, but Dantons weren't the best ones, not even close ;) My favorite ones, from the 'extension' range ;) , are here:

In battleship class my favourite ones are:

If any of those comes out as a injection kit, I won't hesitate for a second :)

That's a masterpiece, beautifully presented. The rigging is absolutely first-class. 

 

I wonder if Hobbyboss will be doing any more like this one?

Now this is fantastic, it is in a class of its own as regards pure fugliness. Tumblehome to the nth degree. Heck, I'd buy a kit of this, as long as it was plastic. :D 

As far as anything else is concerned, what a superb photo, it is all happening in there.

Steve.

Thanks again, I'm happy that you like it. 

Alan between Trumpy and HB, there is a few ships of the era. Tsesarevich (1904 and1917), Lord Nelson, three of Dantons, Schleswig-Holstein (1909 and 1939) plus in dreadnought group there is Dreadnought itself in three versions, Seydlitz and Viribus Unitis with Szent Istfan on the way. There is quite a lot to choose from :)
