Wow Ralph, not only a superb model and seascape, but that rigging is just amazing. More complex and better than a spider could produce.

Top work for sure.... :thumb2:

Hi Ralph
Another very impressive model. For me the rigging just defies belief - so well done.

Ralph, fantastic build. you're even faster than Peter's figure painting. Puts my Hatsuyuki snails pace to shame...I'm still only at the hull.

Cheers,
Richard
