Great painting job!


If the Japanese had a version of this vessel, would it be called Wasabi? :)

Look at all the work & detail that went into making the real thing! Makes building a plastic model of her pale in comparison! :icon_surprised:

Of course, getting the model to look "right" is the tricky bit. ;)

Hi all well all the detail painting on the hull is done.

I've glued the cannons on the sinking side as when it's attached to the base I think it would be very difficult.





Added to the base, need to get some more Poundland bathroom sealant now for the sea
