Is this real, or just fantasy?
« on: November 06, 2015, 09:39:46 am »

Line from a famous song, but describes this model exactly. This man has modelling skills we can only dream of! I particularly like the figure pushing a barrel in one of the scenes to bring home the vastness of what this hulk would be.........

Aid, its a plastic kit modelling facebook group, not a website. I'll pm you it if you want it, let me know, but its mostly other stuff rather than just ships.

Sorry people I can't find the link now. I was following a link on a link on a group page, it was several days ago and I've scrolled back but can't find it.

I got these at the same time. This looks like a real workshop, look at the detail on the lathe! Then wonder because this was built to 1/72nd scale :o :o

This is the standard of modelling you will find at the IPMS show at Telford this weekend.
