A very impressive model Ron. That class was a very effective battleship design.

Another one of Rons remarkable models. When you visit his place, it's like entering a Naval Base.

Very very nice indeed, you have built some very impressive models. Where do you keep all these large models? If I had one, it would fill up my spare room.
