Started the build around September/October 2010 and with a few lay-off periods, finished in November 2019, so that nine year period was probably something like about six years of steady building. By the time it was finished there were few photos taken of it before it went in the case and it's very difficult to get good photos in the case because of unwanted reflections so this is just a collection of a few photos of it completed and some when it was almost finished.

For no conscious reason most photos seem to be of the starboard side -- but there IS a port side! >

Lovely piece of artwork, a fine ship, with a whole load of hours taken from conception to completion, thanks for posting, I am particularly interested in the hull boarding, which is my current stage in a build, so thanks again.
