    I think Ron would be shot at dawn if he did !!!

    To me this is better than Bismark your own fittings are in the real engineering category and superbly done.

    ps If Ron is running short of space perhaps some space could be arranged on the old site for series like this one.

    No shortage of space yet guys :) The limit was set to 50 megs for attachments (by default) and has since been raised much higher.
    Beautiful build Scorpio!

    She came out beautifully, Scorpio! :D
    No, can never see too many photos of her!

    I just noticed he built this gem in slightly over two months!! :shock:


    Just simply amazing....

    Okay, so the question now is...what is the next project?
    What a demanding audience, huh? :lol:

    Superb job, great thread and full of wonderful photos and little tips, as usual, Scorpio.
    And in the process we got the wonderful gift of about a dozen avatars!! :wink:
    Thanks ever so much for sharing your build with us!

    Absolutely magnificent, Scorpio! :shock:

    What you did with the Fly Model kit of Rodney is extraordinary. The old girl never looked this good! :lol: Your work continues to define the term "museum quality."

    Rodney.

    Flat out amazing...a model like that would take me over a year to build and it wouldn't look anywhere tht good. Well done Scorpio!

    Yes, Swinger you can say it, fast and beautiful.
    The model isn't perfect but Scorpio have the hability to make model that is not very perfect into a perfect model.
    I always see the Bismarck and Rodney constructions since the beginning and they are both so perfect that I am thinking in making the madness of buying a ship and build it.
    My biggest fear in making a big ship is that the few months that Scorpio need build one transforms into years for me...

    Now the capital answer, what will be the next build?

    Best Regards,
