Good Grief!! That is unbelievably good. I'm feeling very inadequate (as a modeler, thank you) at the moment...

Seconded! This is a seriously impressive model, even if it were built from a kit rather than scratch.
What materials did you use to construct the hull and superstructure?

SWEEEET! No room for the sailors to walk around on the O-decks, but very cool. I just started back into modeling and you guys are deffinitely providing material to aspire to. Well done!
