She's GORGEOUS!!!

How fake, I dunno - my Chinese isn't very good - but what a thing.

Now - how about a real Dreadnought...?  %%

On Vista if you right click on the writing and then click on "page info" you can translate into English.

Very interesting Glasshopper.  :-))

Lovely, but I suspect all the machinery space is taken up with interactive museum displays etc.

For a museum

China in many ways reminds me of Victorian England.
Whith its new wealth it is embarking on many grandiose architectural projects (think of all the great victorian architecture), art centres (Albert Hall), grand parks, and national museums.

Se it can be done! All you lot have got to do now is talk the british government into making the next new war museum a tribute to the great Royal Navy and all it stood for. What better place to build it that as a full size HMS HOOD.

You can even get the kit from Arkmodel & build your own 1/100 version. 

Here's a build on a local Chinese forum that shows some of the detail.

I've seen this in person & have to say its a pain to RC with limited hull access.

Hi Chuck

The last picture brings to mind "Look But Don't Touch".

What is your opinion of Arkmodels BTW?

Howdy Mark.  Yes, that's why I posted that one.  The redhead is the son of one of our Irregulars who knows what that phrase means, & already has his own RC fishing boat that he runs with us when we sail. Best to start them off young!  :-))

Regarding Ark, they're getting better & now that we've mended our differences last year, I wouldn't have any problem ordering one of their existing kits or doing a commission based on my terms.  I have their Type 39 Song submarine, am waiting for them to complete their new 1/100 Yoshino kit, based on the IJN protected cruiser built by Armstrong in 1893 & about to have them start a new Foxtrot sub kit for a few of us bubbleheads who've been wanting this kit for sometime.
