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?


Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.



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!!!
