    Hi All,

    I would like to present several pictures of my last model of the British L class fleet destroyer HMS Lance.She is shown as in 1942 at Malta with all war modifications and camo Dark Hull Light Upperworks.Model is finished however at the moment you can see only some pictures from early stage .I promise to add much more in the next 1-2 weeks......I need a little better weather...:)I hope you will like it.

    Wow! Was/Is it a kit or did you design it? I love ship models just don't know much about them, so I hope this wasn't a dumb question.:grin:

    Very nice build. Lots of detail... I really like the 20mm guns. Some of the best I've seen.

    Is this a printed model or one of your own design?

    Superb job!

    Great work on all the details, a very beautiful ship you have there!

    I would love to learn how you designed this model, if you have the time. Did you use any particular software in the design?

    I'm looking forward to seeing your bigger ladies!

    Cheers!
    Jim

    Adriano,

    Excellent work. What fine details. Nice job on the mast arrays and rigging.

    You should consider selling your designs... I for one would be interested.

    Thanks for your opinions.I don't use any "special" software apart from "Siatki".
    As you know you can draw using many softwares like Corel Draw,Illustrator and Cad applications.I don't know yet Rhino but I see future of my designs in this program.I hope see you this summer with my next job which will be presented as soon is possible.Regards
