Apart from building an Airfix Scharnhorst when I was about 10, I've not built any ship models. This is the nearest thing in recent years, a Tuploev G5 torpedo boat in 1/144 scale. It's a resin and photo-etch kit by Brengun – the entire hull is a superb one-piece casting.

And why am I NOT surprised that a Migrant kit build looks absolutely fantastic?  Looks like we can expect great things from you Mike!

The build looks really beautiful and the rust stains are just the right touch.  If you didn't know it was a kit, you'd think it was the real thing.

Great job - looking forward to your next ship build.

That is so cool! Since you know I have a penchant for odd and unusual aircraft, this fits right in for the maritime side of things. Awesome! cheers

What also got me is the size. I have two 1/144 U-Boat models so know what to expect size-wise. The pics of your model before the Humbrol tin, made it look of good size (to me at least), then you see it by the tin and realize how small it is. Wonderful pics of a beautiful build.
