    Hi Christos, thank you for your words my freind, much appreciated..... to answer your questions : build time 26 months, and appr. 1950 hours...including the glass case The dark background is done with a black fleetch blanket hanging down from a horizontal plank, and the lower part draped over admiral`s height adjustable ironing table, where the model stands on. From the ceiling I turned 3 existing hallogen spots directed on to the model for illumination . The tip with the black blanket credits to member "Lee" who recommended this tip some time ago Nils
