Finally found where I put the masts, sails and ratlines. So have made a start on my  1/700 HMS Bellerophon

Oh-Kay ... So you use microscope goggles to work on that, right?! :-\




PS: I see you used a real coin to give scale. ;)

You're brave indeed for tacking such a wee scale like that!

I'd probably go cross-eyed or blind or both.

Looks great already! Will keep a weather eye peeled.

That rigged ship is amazing and the carrier is a beaut too!

You have skills that are just off the charts!
