joe100 Posted August 8, 2020 Report Share Posted August 8, 2020 Greetings! Time to share some photos of the finished SMS Emden, 1/1500 scale. The model is completely built from scratch and depicts the ship as she appeared early on during her raiding cruise in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. The hull is made from boxwood, the balance of the detail is brass, and the rigging is a mix of copper and Nitinol wire. The sea base is carved from Nootka Cyprus and painted. As usual no resins or anything there, just paint. The base for the case is made from olive. The scale is 1/1500 or 125’ to the inch. You can see more of my work in my gallery. www.josephlavender.com John Zuch, Bernard Kelly, MickyK and 4 others 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
