Hello. Sorry about that. Had problems making the picture smaller. Anyway, found this model of "Empress of England" about to be put into the water. And it looks a fine model. Ken.

Ken,
It looks as though people were well into large modeling way before we came along!

That is a Very fine model of the Empress of Britain. Generally though, model shipbuilding has virtually died out in Britain these days and the nearest that most people get is kit assembly, which is rather restricting. Here is my little Empress of Britain that I built some years ago. Completely hand-built - no shop bought parts in it!

Hello Bob. Yet again a very impressive model. The water on this one looks so realistic, almost like it's slopping around inside the case. Ken.
