Really well done! :)

Looks actually like a car that's been left sitting unused for 5 or 6 years, then kicked back into life to serve the Resistance in the final months of the war. 8)

Hi all been going through some of my old builds and I still think this is one of my best, if not the best (even over the French galley the la reale) I can't believe I've built 162 kits in the 5 yrs since I got back into plastic kits (and some of them have been huge ( the 1/4 Ducati to say the least) and the big ships) 162 is a conservative estimate as that's what I still have, I've sold some and binned some as well it's probably up near 200 in reality.
I would just like to say thanks for watching as I've gone along.
If I'd stuck to sctatch building ships that number would be nearer 4 yes that's right I would have scratch built 4 ships in the same time, can you tell why I like plastic kits.

200? I think the 4 is closer to my speed! :o

Prolific, that's what you are! :smiley:
