Sent your ship pictures to a Naval Intelligence friend for evaluation.
If agents show up at your door - thatz why.

I like it a bunch.  What is the tube structure at stern?  All I can think off is a big time smoke generator.

I don't know if I'll name it properly but it's a deep charge launcher.

That muzzle-loader on wheels is the icing on the cake! Looks almost ready for action!

Thanks :) But there is a long way to action. First of all I have to make rudder and cooling work. I hope I'll finish working on it this week. Then railings and other small parts and finally painting and weathering.

I think about that camo...probably tribute to survived polish destroyer - ORP Lighting

Artoor-

  Sorry for the late response- you asked-

I' pretty sure that I just don't see bad points of my model cause I see it every day... so can you tell me something about these "couple of things" ?

 Really, its one thing-the rail gun. to my eye, it looks...out of place. When I look at it, I see a much smaller gun ( like a submarine deck gun, or the bow gun on something like a corvette ) greatly enlarged. Its a look that seems out of synch with the look of the rest
of the ship's ordnance.  Something like a hood, or turret, over the assembly, might add to the sense of mass and presence. 

 I really like the Marlins, and the muzzle-loader is great! ( A muzzle-loading Wave motion gun, perhaps? )  Looking forward to the rest of the build!

Maybe you're right , I'll try to do something with gauss gun. Muzzle loader is a kind of "celebration" cannon, you know , shoot on beginning and ending of mission etc :)

Finally! The beast is alive :D Today propulsion tests took place :) Results? I have to remember that I should swim with no more than 1/3 of power. If not... battleship will transform itself into something with speed close to torpedo boat :) Sorry for no photos from tests :)

Top secret photos of propulsion and steering devices :D

Great bashing/scratching. I love the depth charge ejector. Looks like an angry alien insect's ovipositor tube.

Hello!

Last photos before painting. I've added funnels for shafts because of strong vibrations coming from transmission. Also added railings and removed gaps beetween superstructure and deck:

I really like the added details like the chain & railings!

Can't wait to see it painted!
