|This is my newest model, the French predreadnought battleship Marceau. I've always wanted to build a model of this ship. I love French designs of the late 19th
and early 20th century. I was deterred by concerns about the complexity of the tumblehome hull, but these fears proved to be groundless as I had no difficulty at all
shaping the cardboard to fit the outlines of the hull. I only wish that I could build models as well as I could 20 years ago. Funny, I have learned so much about
techniques but somehow don't execute as well. However, I still love the process of putting a model together. The model is built in 1/550 scale.
