Gorgeous, Si, you did her proud! I just spent the last several minutes looking at the pictures - a pleasure to behold.

Si,

A fine finish for a great ship with such history. She will make a great show piece to your collection.

Thanks Mark,

She has not come out too bad at all. Glad to have had your support and kind comments along the way.

Cheers

Thanks Tim,

This build has not been the smoothest, but The Grand Old lady has been worth the effort. I think I have come close to capturing her mix of elegance and toughness.

Thank you for you kind comments and support along the way.

Cheers

Thanks Ned,

I am pleased with the final outcome. The academy kit is basically sound and took the extra detail well.

Cheers

another fine commissioning Si

This one's taken a little more time in the oven than your usual builds mate, but definitely worth the extra mile

Hi Russ,

Slightly longer than usual mate, and she has had her issues along the way, but she got there in the end. I think the testing builds are the more satisfying when they are finished.

Cheers

And once again I'm late in joining in...

Si,

congratulations to your commissioning of the Gand old Lady, that was quite some effort of yours, but it pays and you really have a wonderful HMS Warspite there!!

It was real fun to follow you along, thank you for a really entertaining and instructive build log!!

Cheers,
Jan

Thanks Jan,

I am glad you have enjoyed the journey. I am pleased with the result, She really has the feel of a tough battlewagon, more than any other battleship I have built.

Thanks again for your support along the way.

Cheers

Si
