That red paint always makes a ship stand out to me.

I'm happy to see another update to this wonderful project!

Tommorow model contest in Bytom, Silesia starts. "Judgement Day" will be there. Now it's packed and ready to travel there. Maybe in the evening it'll be "fully operational" and I'll make some photos just before the contest :) Wish her luck (and me maybe too :) ). I also take my Polish Do-335 only to make JMN's mad :D

Putting it next to another ship really puts the size and impressiveness into perspective. :)

I've got to agree. You built a real leviathan there artoor!

One of the best ship builds I've seen lately! Outstanding!

That's disappointing news, artoor. And if you took the time to convert it to an ice-breaker, by then the lake would thaw.

Not only is that absolutely amazing but incredibly brave as well!

Without a doubt it gets an "E" for excellence, but I'd also nominate it for the Navy Cross too!

To borrow form an old rock song, "There won't be any standing, come the "Judgement Day"..."

Exceedingly beautiful and very real looking in the water.

I don't know this song. What is the title ? Google doesn't help this time.
