  1. Very nice build! Great level of detail in this scale!

  2. You did a wonderful job there, Anthony.
    A lot of quality time spent and it clearly shows.
    Myself being mainly an aeroplane guy, I have a soft spot on this marvellous scratchbuilt Dauphin as well.
    All the best!

  3. Beautifully done! Both ships look great!

  4. This ship looks like you could put it in the water and have it sail away. Like several others, I also like the Dauphin, especially in the Chilean markings. Well done!

  5. Well done Anthony, nice scratch building and detailing, I think I will be doing it's sister ship HMAS Newcastle !
