    Thanks for your comments guys, much appreciated.

    Yes I will definitely shoot better pics (they are lousy pics and they are not doing her any justice at all) when flags are done as the kit's are too toyish, so will fabricate them from pewter sheet & spray them later on bounce

    I'll also provide some info on the build as well as this was a hasty shoot out after a night and before work again Sad

    Ray, with your custom of doing a rider for your brother's excellent mounts, you should mortalise this feat by doing a bust or a figure of Lord Nelson! Ok it would not be to scale with the ship, but probably he is one of the best seadogs in history and he merits a place in your gallery collection! Andrea has a very good 54mm ...

    Great idea Iva cheers

    I think a bust is more appropriate to stand near the ship, so hope someone gets illuminated to sculpt a commercial bust of Lord Horatio Nelson king

    Ray, try to entice our Spanish friend and sculptor Antonio to make a Nelson bust. He is a grest sculptor and is showing us some lovely work with the busts he sculpts. I am sure he can make an original masterpiece.
