Hello,

Started as Rui Matos (skipper) Cold War TinCans Around the World Campaign entry, but failed to finish to during the scheduled period. Better late than ever. Enjoy. Rui

Very nice, I like the suggestive wakes from another ship.

beautiful build Rui.. and thanks for listing the list of AMs, very useful at least for me to know where things come from. Love the water base and photography (great angle on the cover pic) cheers

I like the feel of movement mixed with urgency, a very active looking realisation combined with top modelling skills makes this a fine display composition.

Cheers, Rui,

Oooooo! I LIKE IT!!

The wake on this water base is a terrific example to learn by, attempt to copy, and admire! I'm admiring the tiny splashes of foam, here and there, Rui.

The model, itself, would stand out in a crowd, anywhere!

Thanks guys...

Just trying to get better... in this one the improvement was the rigging (so far, it is my best).
