and to give idea of size...with H44 ...wich was my initial thinking...but when looking at details like bringing up lenght, beam but mainly draft...a bit complicated with my kit
FYI, for the image I used bismarck and scaled it up, gave it a slight proportion alternation to correspond the size projected of lenght vs wide

Very nice work. If they're all on a shelf, use a custom acrylic case top to protect from dust.

Fully agree with Dan K. Get an acrylic cover as soon as possible. The dust with negate all of your efforts.
