Hey Christer!

Another fine job here!
I am sorry but the only thing missing is a Southern Atlantic scene for it!
(Not that this presentation isn't good - but I always find these 1/700 ships more suitable for a scene display than mounted full hull - just a question of personal taste!!!)

Keep up showing us your good ship models!

Thanks guys!

I fully agree with Skipper that a the scene might be more enhanced with some "water".

My only "defence" for not letting this happen is simple, I just didn't have the patience for full filling this.

The HMS Sheffield was built during my summer vacation with a parallell boat ship project. Some of you have already seen the other project with IJN Kumano and IJN Ayanami. This project included some water inbetween them. As I see it, the HMS Sheffield is purely a "summer bonus" for me.

But Skipper has a point in his feedback.

I promise more "water effects" next time. A ship derserve water.

Hi Christer!

You don't need to defend yourself of nothing! The model is good! And it would be interesting to see both HMS Liverpool and the Sheffield together and spot the differences.

What I mentioned was on a personal taste level

Keep up,
