  1. Definitely the road less travelled! I love your progress and commitment to authenticity. Cheers, Tom
  2. This is a really great start! I have this kit and many of the elements that I’ve thought about (eg, doors and windows) you’ve addressed very nicely. I’m also planning to copper the hull so will be taking notes from your work. Thanks for posting your build. Cheers, Tom
  3. I’ve saved every picture for reference. This is great! Cheers, Tom
  4. Your are very kind! I was also amazed at her depth below the waterline, perhaps a testimony to her armor. Not everyone knows she had torpedo tubes down there, and I historical accounts indicate that she fired torpedoes at the Bismarck. Cheers, Tom
  5. I love these updates, and I’m saving your photos for reference. Considering the IJN Mikasa is in the same rarified category as the HMS Victory or USS Constitution, I am mystified why there isn’t a readily available good comprehensive reference for her. Cheers, Tom
  6. Very cool! Is your Nelson posted online? Writing of unusual ships, I really wish Trumpeter would release the HMS Abercrombie and Roberts in 1/200. Model on! Cheers, Tom
  7. Very impressive introduction! I really am enjoying your work. Will you be adding copper plating to the hull? Cheers, Tom
  8. Just catching up with this wonderful thread, and It is very impressive! I’m working on the 1/200 HMS Rodney, also a very long term build. Your work really makes me want to get back to it! Cheers, Tom
  9. Excellent progress. Knowing when to break up a continuous plank and insert stealers is an art I hope to rediscover! Following your work helps. Cheers, Tom
  10. Eye candy, every single one of these photos! Even though I don’t plan to model this ship I learn so much here. Thank you for sharing your work! Cheers, Tom
  11. Thanks Mike, you are very kind! I have a feeling your Walrus build will be the better of the two! I do love the versatility of using Future (I actually use an equivalent called "Quickshine"), whether for a gloss coat, filling small gaps, as an adhesive, and to simulate glass. There's probably other applications out there! Cheers, Tom
