EMILE BERTIN

The hull is made with a plank of polar wood

When I get the horizontal shape I pin point the place of fittings using the plan printed on transparent paper. So the position will be accurate

Hi, scratchbuilding at this 1/500 scale and making its own PE deserves full respect indeed !

Effectivement, néanmoins cela sonnait un peu Japonais !
Bravo encore pour le scratch au 1/500° : je n'ai pour ma part ni les doigts ni les yeux dimensionnés pour ça !
C'est vrai que ça prend moins de place que les cuirassés au 1/72°...
