This is the last of my scratch built models. It is 6 feet long w/2 channel R/C controls. The first picture will give you an idea about the detailing. The next shot is of the mold I made to make the hull out of fiberglass. It is quite strong and the bow is reinforced. The superstructure is all bass wood.
If you are able to link the last four pictures together

Very impressive. How long did this take to build?

I think we need a forum just for scratch modelers so we can add this one to the modeling lumberjocks!

This is a beautiful warship model and it displays a lot of fine details and wonderful craftsmanship.

Too bad the pictures aren’t larger, I’d like to see the detail. Amazing build.
