Time for an update on my build of SMS Baden. More and more details are getting added...

I also started a similar conversion of the ICM kit into a Kaiser class battleship, see in the appropriate section for that.

Another masterpiece! How is she looking like now? You really should post more of your ships. They really are inspirational models! :thumbs_up_1:

Mmm,

She's finished -- except fort the railings and rigging that is. I'll post a picture of the current state.

You have hit on my biggest bad habit: closing off a project to all the finesses is not a strong characteristic of me... Many more lying around in different states....
It's the novel challenge that's attracting me to jump to new subjects, to solve something no-one had done before. The patient execution of handycraft I'm not so good at.

That is outstanding! The turrets look very good! Where did you get the railings on the bridge? Or are they generic rails?
Want to see more! :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1:

Thank your, Aop!
I really like this project, as I could make good use of the large majority of the ICM kit parts, most of which are very good themselves, like the boats. I also used the WEM PE set fort the railings and some details. But generic railing could have been used as well. The turrets turned out well too, thanks to the availability of very good drawings.

From reviews, the ICM parts do look great. Those boats look very nice as well. As I said, I hope you will post more! You should make a thread on your Vanguard project...and you could post photos of your Rodney in the Picture Post section! :thumbs_up_1:

Cheers!
Aop
