Did you use a self made jig for assembling the Oerikons? (Photo 12)
Hi again, and thanks for the note! I didn´t make a jig and somehow got away with it 😉
Hi Frank, very nice so far, count me in. Cheers Stefan
Thanks a lot, Stefan!
Making Waves 3 | Album by Frank Spahr (1:350-700)
Habe gerade Bilder vom Schneidegerät in das Album "Making waves pt. 3" eingefügt.
Stunning work Frank, it looks fantastic on that sea base! 👍
Thanks a lot for the kind comments!
Seems so simple, but the realism is astonishing
Awesome tutorial Frank, many thanks for sharing 👍👍👍
Thanks a lot to both of you, much appreciated!
Ah, the Magician opens the book of spells.
Thank you, Frank.
We aim to please 😉

Spot on Frank.
Thanks a lot for the comments and the likes! I finally got a new photo backdrop and find the blue both more pleasing visually and also more helpful re contrast. I also got another shade of blue, two greys and one in black - for more tests.
@JamesC - there's a very good reason for that 😄 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Van_Speijk-class_frigate
It looks great Frank! Huge difference!
Thank you , Zach - that´s how I wanted it to look in the first place ...

Great build 👍
Nice one Frank.
Thank you, folks - I´m glad I completed the project as it was really demanding and terminally iffy. But I like British carriers and to me this is one of the most interesting amongst them.
Great (and large) modelling! Your efforts really paid off: top result in every aspect! I hope you have a good place to display this work of art!
Very nice work!
Thank you very much! Space wise, it´s actually no big deal. The vessel fits well into a Trumpeter display box in 1:700.
Frank this is superb build ! Congrats !!!
Thanks a lot, Piotr!
Just perfect - at first I thougt these are photos of a real thing.
Thanks a lot, Robert!
Thats a really ugly bird but you made a very nice model out of it 👍
Such a weird plane seen from the side...
I do love it!
If you go out at night, take the ugly ones and you are having more fun. Just an old saying... 🤗 Looks great!
Thanks a lot to all of you, much appreciated indeed!

In fact I completed the original kit from Artitec, which is not in the database.

Another great build and sea base Frank. We'll done and thanks for sharing it.
Ah the sponge seems like a nice idea. I will have to try remember that for trying to make an ocean diorama myself. 🙂
I agree with Tim. Ein Meisterwerk!
Thank you all very much!
That's impressive! 👍

Very nice Frank
Extraordinary job, especially the mast and rigging look really good ! The teaser pic for the project file really brings out the beautiful lines
