1/700 DD-436 USS Monssen

August 30, 2017 · in Ships · · 27 · 5.4K

I built this ship, September, 2015. The ship was damaged by several shocks. The screws were damaged and the hand rails were damaged. So, I make a diorama with this ship.
DD-436 USS Monssen was sunk by Japanese warships off Guadalcanal 13 November 1942. Since I made a reference to the pictures of the Philippine Sea, it is not entirely compatible with the historical records.
I hope you understand it as a piece of work rather than a historical fact.

  1. Fantastic piece of art!

  2. I need your private lessons about diorama! Definitely!

  3. Beautiful! As usual, you have made a top quality, interesting diorama. Your rock formations look absolutely real!

    A pleasure to see!

    • Thank you very much. Thank you for always being praised.

      • Won-hui Lee, you deserve a lot of praise. You have earned every " 'Atta Boy" you have gotten. (An 'Atta Boy is a slang term we used when someone did a GREAT job!) You can 'collect' as many " 'Atta Boys" as possible, but one "Oh Shi .." will erase 10 " 'Atta Boys!" It's a fun & good!)

  4. Very nicely done!

  5. "...a piece of work..." indeed! You are a true master in this form of "art", sir.

  6. Another spectacular model, Well done Won-hui !

  7. Another beauty! You are a master of shaping water and wakes - it just looks perfect.

  12. Cracking work again mate! I didn't realise it was that small till I saw the lighter!

  13. An amazing work of modeling!

  14. Unbelievable. This is trully a marvelous work.

  15. Another beautiful seascape, I especially like the way you get the scale right, up close the ship would seem huge, but, in the sea, it's dwarfed by nature.

  16. What a lovely and peaceful diorama!
