    Looks great Nannu......just a nag......couldn't you have used rolled/turned soldering wire, or rolled/turned copper wire to simulate that rope? Looks a bit "untidy" to say the least (pic's enlargement is not doing it any justice I know) and it blots an otherwise excellent rendition.

    Sorry Nann, just my honest, humble opinion Sad

    Nice work Lou - it really comes together especially the worn orange paint. Good scale rendition!

    I can't believe all the detail you are putting into these ships and the diorama, it is such a small scale, simply unbelievable!

    Lou, the ship is great but i must admit that i totally agree with Ray. i would remove it altogether. I don;t like it and i don't like the colour for it either. If you really wish to have the rope i would use some of the very thin braided wiring that Joseph gave us a few weeks ago. It is very thin, very soft and workable and is braided so when painted, you would still have the rope finish to it. I would use that or else nothing, otherwise that thing is really beautiful. You are really excelling yourself here.

    The rich quality of your work shows thru the poor quality of the pics JUST THE SAME, so don't worry too much re quality of the pics.....we (excluding the selected few) are all in the same bucket of lousy pic shooters cheers

    Sublime work Nannu Pec.....will look impressive when finished as usual cheers

    Thanks guys...yes very, very ,very and I mean very crappy pics indeed....we should organize a workshop ...subject taking decent pictures lol! lol! lol! Joking apart I think it would be a very interesting subject...
    All those interested should get their cameras along and maybe some photographic gurus like David, john...Tiny and the selected few can give us a few tips how to use each individual camera......
    what I cant understand scratch scratch scratch scratch is sometimes my pics turn out really good....those of the expo turned out ok and sometimes ...the pics look like they have been taken by a 3 year old kid.....not that I'm not lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol! lol!

    Nice work Lou, especially the weathering on the hull!!! Very very credible. Not sure I like the buildings especially the hangars which are a wee bit too shaded but then I'm prejudiced.

    Like your idea about photo taking lessons! Could do with some myself.
