Aesthetically the Deutschland class is one of my favorite ships! How cool to have such a big display, well done.

Congratulations Russ!

Very well done, she is a real piece of art - and an exotic model even in Germany. So very nice to see your magnificent build!

Keep on with the Canadian beauties, I´m looking forward! ;-)

Best regards from Dortmund!

Hi Russ I very much like the method you have for making the stairway , I shall take note !!! By the way my good friend Jonathan Evans from Bradford Ontario produces a number of superb hulls of modern RCN warships and fittings , all 1:72nd scale .

hi richard,seeing that i am a canuck,i was thinking that i may try a canadian navy ship .the two i am contemplating are a st laurant class d.e after a rebuild to a helicopter d.e ,or a halifax class frigate.the reason for going to a smaller ship i can increase the scale to 1/96.i am limited in length to 53 ins.my work area will not take anything bigger :heh: st laurant would be about 46 ins. and a halifax arouind 53 ins.1 have went from 1/200 to 1/144 so i think a bigger scale would be a nice challenge and the older i get bigger things would be easier to handle :big_grin: 70 is getting dam close.(ps. i know the bigger the scale the more detail)
