Very nice looking Oylmpia.

I had originally guessed early 1900’s on her, but totally forgot the crew repainted her for the up coming Manila Bay battle.

She will provide some nice reference for my own future build.

Thanks for sharing!

Good workmanship Peter!
It's always a pleasure to see your works and find fine details! Good (excellent for my standards) rigging, very good wave motion and interesting paint scheme makes this another very enjoyable moment online
Congratulations Peter
Keep them coming
