Haddock:
Latest project, started a week or so ago.
The pictures probably speak for themselves.
More to come shortly.
Haddock.

MSea:
Another masterpiece in the making

chriswil42:
Another good star Mr Haddock.

Haddock:
Thanks chaps.
More stuff.

3.  Just a general view of the main deck, not much fixed in place, just a dryfit.

4.  Then the start of the masts. There's some nice detail moulded into the plastic which I didn't think
 I could replicate in brass so I decided to graft brass topmasts in place, a bit of crafty cutting and
drilling did the job. The topmasts taper from 1.4 mm down to 0.6 mm, great stuff this Albion Alloys
tube.

5.  Then the foremast, the mainmast is more or less the same except for height. The crows nest is supplied
in etched brass, it looks like a parrots cage so what you see is my version which looks more
like the those in the old photo's.

6.  Funnels and boat handling cranes.

7.  A searchlight platform.

8.  Ships boats.

9.  Main armament.

Haddock.



Bigkev:
Hi Haddock,
That looks an impressive beast.
Watching and learning.
Cheers,
Bigkev
