Extensive construction work on the old Tamiya kit. I have made several improvements. The masts have been made of wire. The support vessel is made of scracht and also one of the small boats. The lighthouse is also made in scracht, taking a real one as a reference.

  1. Really nice, Manuel (@kometa). Even in 1/700, your model gives us the sense of the size of this ship. Well done.

  2. Nice diorama, love the details.

    Captain of the ship would probably be shot for anchoring so close to the rocks, though...

  3. That’s a great looking Missouri. I love seeing 1/700 ships done to such a high standard.

  4. Beautiful! Superb rigging!
