Don't you hate the way the sea effect is done ? Boy is that good, I'd be over the moon if he explained how he did this and what he used, from my view point, the sea actually looks deep, its got that ''wouldn't want to fall overboard'' look about it, as for Hood - that's also a darn good build.

Almost forgot to ask ---------- what's happened to the lighter ?

The water effects are marvel, conveying a fluid sense with wetness and depth. I am also impressed with the weathering which strikes a balance of a busy ship, yet one which is cared for. The depiction of the various crew figures about the ship in purposeful poses is a plus, and I appreciate the attention to little details like the lashings on the boat stacks. A work of art all round.

A Nice build thier Kostas!The ropes over the sides of the hull along with the crew members makes the build take on a life of her own.Possibilly takes one back in time Cheers Kevin
