Hello Gigantesco, the model is looking good , My question relates to the scale of the model, Longridges' Model is to 1:48 which is 1/4 inch to the foot

 

1:64 would be 3/16ths to the foot.

 

Is your model 1:66 a metric equivalent?

Excellent work, Gigantesco.  I'm happy to see an update as I was afraid you had stopped working on her.

Thank you for the compliments I do not deserve because they are not a good modeller. I just want to be able to make this my strange idea of ​​a victory which lacks a portion of the sides.

not strange at all! open models are nice so much more to see. Maybe you should consider making pictures with a tripod, I'm assuming you're currently shooting by hand, in addition use the timer, and it will be easier to make sharp pictures, you work surely deserves it.

 

Keep on the good work,

Michiel
