Heller plastic kit reconstructed with new scratchbuilt structures, modified sections and added details, some scratchbuilt and some photoetched. The midships section was completely reworked and re-detailed. New main gun turrets were cast especially for this model. More deck detail, rigging and real anchor chain finished off the model. Sorry for some of the photos being a little fuzzy. The CD shown in one of the lower photos gives some idea of size. It took about 3 months' worth of work to complete the project. The model was sold earlier this year on eBay.
