    A designer friend of mine, heinkel111, is currently working on the design of the Spanish battleship Pelayo. He is riding the white version of the model and I have asked to mount the test version in color.

    It's always a pleasure to see a paper model of a 19th century warship. Excellent work!

    The model is still in the process of development and its designer is looking for an editor.

    Even in development, your work is GOOD. I'm very impressed with the way you got the lower hull (the underwater part :mrgreen:) so nicely curved - and the rest of the hull just fits right into it! Amazing!! Good luck with your work!

    The designer has found a website that is interested in marketing it, is waiting to take photos of the finished model in color so I hope to get lucky and be my model that appears.
