Hope you don't mind, but I added the image tags so the picture shows up rather than a link - Mark

Nice work. What is the model behind her. It looks a bit earlier than the Hood.

I also recently aquired Academy;s Hms Warspite, it is a beauty, moulding is as good as, or better than Trumpeter and half the price. includes photo etch cranes.

It's easy to make the picture appear as a photo rather than a link. Highlight the link in your post, and then click the Img button above.
It will then add the image tags and it should look like this, but not is a white box.

Code: Select all

I've seen that Dreadnought kit on Ebay quite a few times, but it never sells cheaply :( I've bid on a few, but haven't won one yet.

She is tiny compared to the Hood!!

don't forget Hood was the biggest warship in the world at the time, I mean physically, dimentionally. the lack of superstructure on dreadnought amazes me. the crew must have lived like rabbits down holes
