Re: Not a Tri-ang Ark Royal - some background info / photos
The model turned out beautifully.
A common problem with 3D models from Shapeways are poor masts. I invariably have to either replace them, or substantially rework or enhance them. The same is true of gun barrels.
Here is a brief note of the origins of this model along with some photos of the completed model.
The model was derived from a printed 1/1200 'war gaming standard' model of the Ark. At first glance this looked quite good, but turned out to be deceptively inaccurate in several key areas. I will provide a lot of detail later with photos, but at the moment I am still editing the large number I took during the build into a coherent sequence.
