    I occurred to account the chain as large as when it was put. I thank to the commentaries on the errors so that of them I learn much more that of the good commentaries.

    Thanks Ski and a greeting.

    PD: Greater they have been left the stairs.

    Progresses

    These are the progresses of the model. The details in wire have been great, but it is the best thing than I have been able to do.

    Hello everybody, not long ago that work in this model, gives me a lot of punishment on the shelf to see him, I decided to ride across the stern, I left a lot by assembling parts and this is the aspect that it has today.

  13. Beautiful, however if I may, it appears the anchor chain is a bit over scale. Otherwise I find your work very nice indeed.

    True, the chain is very large, the manufacture and I was not very good.

    Hello everybody, all things come to an end, my model of the USS Iowa has also come to an end.

    [​IMG]

    In these photos you can see the model completely finished

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Details stern to bow

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    and now bow to stern

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    and now "artistic" photography

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    As a final assessment I would say that the model despite being very old fits very well, the problems I have had to interpret diagrams assembly but I found a forum in German, the assembly of the Misouri of the same period and from the same manufacturer and with These images got finish mine.

    A greeting

    Good grief! That's an impressive build. Excellent job, Chapuzas. Obviously a labour of love. :)
