Here are some photographs of my most recent model.  It is a model of the British predreadnought battleship HMS Queen, scratch-built in 1:550 scale.  
I've started building a series of models of the HM predreadnought battleship classes.  Previously, I built
HMS Duncan in a light gray, which is more
pleasing to my eyes than the darker gray of
HMS Queen.  However, my wife was delighted with the darker gray.  I'm now building HMS Canopus in
black.  It is killing me as I can't see any details, which is causing me to make countless  mistakes.
