An excellent build throughout and well deserving of the "Green" medal for the highlighted build of the month.

Just completed Issue 107. Starting to look like a really detailed behemoth. :-)

This is such an epic model build.

Oz builders have finally finished the hull. Almost at the end now. :-)

Latest Pics added of my build, plus also a pic of the paint, washes and weathering kits I use to create the weathered effect.

Sorry no smoke coming from the stack. That would be modelling skill level “Platinum”.

I’m only still learning by trial and error. Current skill level “Premium Economy” :-)

I love the interwebs. Plenty of nice imagery tools to find and use.

First attempt at rigging. Going surprisingly well... and relatively simple.

Using ship lycra rigging thread.

... And we're finally finished. Final weathering and rigging finished today. Great build with plenty of detail. Full array of final pics will be added to the completed builds area of the forum.
