    Hello friends,
    It is already so far. Thus, the tower are almost ready.
    There still comes to a few parts.
    Everything is from cardboard. Refinement is from me. I have used the original pictures as a pattern.

    Greeting

    I know this is rather repetitive, but ....WOW!!! :shock:

    Scorpio, what did you use to make the railings across the top of the turrets? Can't tell if it is thin wire or thread.

    What I love about your work is the attention to details and the execution of those details to utter perfection. I swear, looking at the top photo of the turrets I could almost swear those were the real turrets!

    Thank you for posting those photos.
    Jim

    Thanks for a good number of excellent photos, Scorpio! :D
    I can see the railings a bit better now. It appears you used a bit of paint or some other coating to make the surgical thread a bit more rigid, am I right? They look so good, correct thickness and cleanly made, just as if they were the real thing. Very nice job! :D
    It's a real treat to just look at your photos, but I imagine seeing the real thing in person is that much more impressive!
    Keep those photos coming, we love this ship and your work on her!!
