Looks great!  I've been looking at the Hornet but I need to save some more beer tokens before that happens.

Very nice, are you planning to do the Hood when she is released in 1/200 ?  :-))

Ive no idea what I'm going to do next yet. I guess the hood would be the natural option but i quite like the look of the Arizona and the Hornet. I think i will just have to see whats available at the time.  :-))

Fantastic looking ship.  Could you go into a bit of detail on how you have access to the internal RC stuff.  I would imagine parts of the superstructure are removable,  but which parts  and how do you hold them together??  Maybe magnets??.

Anyway,  thanks again for sharing your work.  Looks very impressive.

Hi Timmer,


Couple of comments...


First, thanks for sharing all the build photos! I'm scratch-building a 1:144 Bismarck, and the details - especially the photo-etched parts - seem spot on.


Rigging: Are you planning on adding rigging? The model, I think, would benefit from at least some basic rigging added.


Waterline: The model is riding extremely high in the water. The black boot-topping is actually where the ship ought to be riding. A nominal goal would be to have it sitting in the water at the center of the boot, all the way around.




Great job!
