Been working on it for the whole 2010.
I personally interested in container ship. So, i put as much effort as i can to make it looks realistic. Heaps of photo etch are used & hundreds of photo are studied. To make the container looks corrugated, i use scriber to craft lines on it, which is a big pain. But it does make a difference.
At this stage, only 5 blocks of container been made.

Enjoy the photo & hope you'll love my work. ^_^

That's impressive!

I have that kit and yours looks miles better than the built photos Revell provide, and I like the different containers too. With all the same shipper it would look boring and unrealistic.
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Seriously, its a big ship.  Very impressive.

Seriously impressive!  :bow:

For anyone looking for a way to add some variety to the containers, Gwylan Models has got you covered. CLICKY!

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?


Decals my @r$e!



Nice job!!!  I got this kit to turn it into one of the proposed MPF ships (multiple designs out there, I like the one with the through deck for the LCAC's).
I exist to pi$$ others off!!!
