WIP here; Thanks to everyone who followed the WIP and gave advice and feedback 👍   

 

Lot's of pics because of the size - mounted on the sea base she's 90cm long!

Nice kit, and great as a base to add detail to. Hope you like the pics as much as I enjoyed building her.

Nick that is truly inspirational !!

 

Love the little dio's with figures

The rigging an artistic masterpiece

Nailed the seascape 

As I scrolled through the pics I was thinking this could be the real thing. Then you went to black and white and it was real!!

etc. etc.

 

Looking forward to your next build...

I agree - Magnificent.  Detail everywhere - you just keep looking.

Paint finish, rigging and figures particularly carry the day.

The B&W pics look to be WW2 originals.

I'd love to see this in the flesh.

Congratulations B)

Fantastic model Nick, the black and white pictures do look very true to life - HMS Royal Oak below for comparison:

The vignette groups of figures going about their day-to-day tasks, or idling, help add an extra layer of detail which bring the model to life, taking it beyond a simple display piece.

Stunning.  Absolutely stunning.  Those head on pics are amazing, really show the amount of work you've put into making it as realistic as possible.

Superb Nick. That is excellent job. Water efekt very realistic. 

If on this photo you have a camera bit lower I can think it is a real one.
