Here's the obligatory upgrade kits



Cracking on, here's the 5" gun and the back of the ship with some railings.

I'd have trouble focusing in it let alone building it! I find 1/35th challenging at times.....

Hey guys,
Gary had this along at our club night and all I can say is that these photos just don't do his work justice. I mean you know it's small but when it is on the end of your finger.... just blowes your mind!

That being said, it's a bit of a let-down that the barrel is not rifled. :whistle:
