    My last build was the Tsarist battleship Tsesarevich. I took it to our local IPMS meeting where our club photographer took some nice shots of it.

    It is my first attempt at using a white color scheme. I was worried that it would get smeared, but somehow I avoided that pitfall. I actually am not really pleased with the resulting model, but the photos look pretty good.

    Thanks, guys. RMKS2000: The ship is a scratch built model, built entirely from paper, cardboard, & white glue. Drawings used came off the Internet.

    Russian battleship Tsesarevich model photos

    I wanted to post a few additional pictures. I hope this works. The process seems different.

    The trick seems to be to trick the system. ????




    Also a photo of the model during construction at the old shipyard.


    The model took me 8 months to complete due to inertia. Golden Bear's French predreadnought posts prompted/inspired me to finally finish the model.

    That's got to be the best one yet great detail rivals the resin kits if not better

    Barry: Thanks for your comments. I agree that it is possible to build card models that are on the par of plastic & resin. The 1/200 & 1/250 scale paper ships are finer than 1/350 plastic models in my opinion. (I work in a much smaller scale & cannot/dare not match that level of detail for fear of going crazy!)
