WoW!

That is an impressive looking model as far as I could ascertain- any more close-up pics David W ?

The Bismarck--thas EVEN bigger than Phillip Ardell's model?--I recall his was 1/72?

Nice models, I am building a Fearless hull in 1/72nd at the moment. Can anyone tell me why there is a Gibraltar flag present at this event? Is one of the members from Gibraltar like me?
