joe100 Posted October 18, 2019 Report Share Posted October 18, 2019 Here are some photos of my progress on my scratch-built, 1/1500 scale HMS Dreadnought, 125’ to 1” at just over 4” long overall. The hull was made from boxwood, the deck planked with bass. The balance of the detail is mostly brass, with some styrene, aluminum, and tungsten wire. The funnel was made from aluminum sheet, and is hollow all the way through. Probably overkill, as I included not only the external piping but internal as well. The handrails are brass, awning stanchions are tungsten wire. The bridge has a full interior, ship’s wheel, telemotors, binnacle, chart table. They can all be seen through the bridge windows and through the bridge wings. The bridge windows will receive glazing but not until the model is finished and clear coated Total parts count at the time of this post is 702.
