well, the announced scale is like the name : I don't know yet  ;D

but as was noticed, the tail fit nicely, as soon as I devised the use of some thin plastic sheet to soften the shapes ...
so I am lead by parts fitting more than by narratives  ;D

Wonderful. Much better than I thought possible!  :thumbsup:
The rear view looks nearly as a possible real "something".
But you need an helmsman (and a big wooden helm, obviously)  ;)

thanks all !  ;D

the tail came out surprisingly well indeed (I'm not always in total control, but sometimes I catch a lucky stroke)

I will think about a helm, it would indeed make it a bit more inhabited ...
