  1. Now THERE’S sumthin; ya don’t see every day. I didn’t even know there WAS a TV series that included such a vessel. Bein’ a sc-fi rendition, I don’t see how it could be ‘wrong’, though.

  2. Another spectacular offering.

  3. A great and crazy model!
    I like that you weathered the part below the waterline as much as the part above it.

  4. That’s FANTASTIC! I’m not into ship models, but that like to build. Well done.

  5. A blast from the past ,had forgotten this show! Great work!

  6. Can’t help but love this one. I have never seen the series, but I reckon that as a model she looks even better than the anime original. 380 working hours is a lot of work, but what a result. Much appreciated together with your other recent postings.

    Welcome onboard at iModeler 🙂

  7. Bravo!!!!! Love it! Lovely work – just beautiful.
