That's strange, I could have swore I left a comment the other day, I do hope this site isn't having those nutty problems the other site has had.
Okay - very nice display and a great backdrop to add the overall effect, I keep reminding myself to either paint a backdrop or buy a poster, I normally have a cutting board, odd sheets of MDF or photo against a brickwall, I guess its a little odd spending a week, sometimes 2 weeks building a model and never pay attention to a nice, or not bad looking backdrop.

A super looking model peter and thos aerials are incredible given were looking at 1/700. Fine work sir, a standard to aspire too.

Thank you my freinds, you are all very kind.

The backdrop is the beach, sea and sky at Lancing, W Sussex, UK. I find that the light, and sky can have a great effect on presentation. The real problem is holding the build in one hand, and the camera in the other in a light wind - not easy.

The cage aerials are manufactured away from the kit and put on as a whole later - I will post a demonstartion shortly on the main site.

Cheers, everyone,

Another notch in Peter's belt: Cage Aerials

I have to agree with Guido, with the mixed skills that this model show, but it's a good sign: it means that you have evolved in this last couple of years!
Also, good job with the figurines and I have to ask why so many White Ensign flags (pardon my ignorance)?

Thank you everyone for your encouragement, and praise. It is a great model to build plus you have the WEM pe to help which is a big bonus.

I have seen many pictures of RN ships going into action, Rui, and they all have White Ensigns flying from every point, a wonderful spectacle. I guess some jingoism there but a great way to stop freindly fire.
