Before anyone wonders about the positioning or the camo of the ships, let me just say that this was requested by the client of mine , knowingly that it was wrong.He justs wanted that way and i built it up for him.

All of us have a favorite ship and battle in naval history. This dio covers two of my favorite ships and one of the two battles I am a big student of. Beautiful work! I can almost taste the salt spray and smell the cordite.

Fantastic! The way you've caught the light glittering on the sea is particularly impressive

We HAVE to get Kostas to do a detailed build up and show us how to do that seascape. I know he uses a white glue build up, but how he gets the waves and the effects? Love to see a build up on that. David

That makes two of us, mate...or three, four, five?....

Beautifully done, I am always amazed at the work people like Kostas can do in such a small scale. I thought the method he used for joining two separate bases is clever. Al

Absolutely first class. The water effect is amazing, and the ships are fantastic as well. Besides the camo, that you mentioned, I'd add one other thing. It might be that your client requested this as well but at the Battle of the Denmark Strait Prinz Eugen, not Bismarck was the lead ship. The Hood didn't realize this at first, Prince of Wales saw it from the start. Again based on your great work I'll bet your client requested it this way.
