    The Latin phrase "Reductio od absurdum" comes to mind, as you have shown the inner truth of your models, by reducing your models to their essence, I believe your work to be a truly unique art form. I have seen nothing like it elsewhere.

    Es ist wunderbar, meisterhaft , große Meisterschaft der Kunstform Sie erstellt haben und gemeistert!!:Bravo::Drinks::drinksmile:

    Olli, this is one beautiful ship, you do her great justice, and keep her memory alive. In conflict, these men served bravely, did not rejoice in killing, you honor those who go down in the sea in ships.

    Olli, das ist ein schönes Schiff, Sie tun ihre große Gerechtigkeit, und halten ihr Gedächtnis lebendig. In Konflikt, diese Männer tapfer gedient nicht in der Tötung freuen, ehren Sie diejenigen, die in Schiffe im Meer untergehen . :(...............................Claphands:Bravo:

    You are far from stupid. I would say a bit crazy :triplets: (as most of us are, myself included), but far from stupid.
    At 11 cm, I am ABSOLUTELY BLOWN AWAY with your work.

    Fantastic! I remember building a plastic Graf Spee many, many moons ago. A friend want to re-enact the Battle of River Plate with "live ammo" (firecrackers) in the swimming pool. I point blank refused. Her captain was possibly one of the last "gentlemen sailors" who served during WW2 for either side.
