Hi Peter!

You're Biter/Obdurate dio looks fantastic!!!
With all the problems that you mention, you have masterly outcome them and made another beautiful and very full of action dio!
I like it - and again you took a major advantage on me, since my own Biter and Onslow are still... in their Boxes

I guess I will have to bother you on the Biter (soon)
Congratulations!!
Cheers,


Rui

Fantastic bit of modelling Peter!

Both ships look great, together in this setting with your life like water effects it's one of the best models I've seen in a while.

Thanks for sharing it with us,

Great looking dio pair there Peter. That water looks ready to dive right into, something that I am working on for my own ship models at the moment. Excellent work all around dispite the trials and tribulations mentioned.

Cheers, guys, thank you for your very kind comments.

The method of creating the water is here on this site on my Averoff blog in the full build competition. But be careful! what looks good in photogaphy looks very different in real life. I was a bit apprehensive about this one as the effect in reality is like the unit tops in a tart's bathroom, very dark and glossy like some expensive marble - I continue.....

ps : I'm gessing about the bathroom finishes, Mrs Peter F - honest

And as a side note, mates, I have Peter's base making method set up and staged into a full feature article that will be running soon here at MSW...

When i think i always dismiss more recent ships because they're uniformly grey, well i stand corrected! What a beautiful build and blend of colour, Peter that's another great victories of yours -that first pic which shows all the intricate details below the bridge is fantastic, what a splendid sense of picture taking!
