Hi Joseph  :wave:


Great work on the models & photos !  :bow:


I 'm still sure it's all 'smoke & mirrors' personally.  ;)

No one can REALLY make models that small ...

... or can they !  :cool:



My new personal favorite is ...





... which seems a lot like Nelsons flagship 'HMS Victory' to me ...  L:

... I'm no expert though, so I'm probably miles off there !  :P


I did go onboard 'HMS Victory', as a kid, for a good walkabout, around the entire ship.

Gee, the headroom aint all that, in those things is it ! ...  :shocked:

... I was fine back then though, at probably less than 5' tall.  :)

Interesting to see the start of the new Battleship ...  :brill:

... & how you have made 'the sea' with basic hull parts, painted first ...

... as a solid base on which to build up from.



:moose: :moose: :moose: :moose: :moose:

Thanks!
Glad you like them!

No smoke and mirrors, I assure you.


There was quite a big size difference between Victory and Endeavor.
Victory displaced around 3,500 tons, while Endeavour displaced just 367 tons.

Victory’s wartime crew numbered about 1,000 officers and men,
while Endeavor carried a cramped 94.


The largest ship of the line built during the Napoleonic Wars,
was Nuestra Señora de la Santísima Trinidad, built in Cuba by the Spanish Empire.

Santísima Trinidad displaced nearly 5,000 tons and carried 140 cannon.
She was captured and scuttled at Trafalgar.

Joseph,

I am most impressed by your early ironclads!
