Thanks to the motivation I get from others here at this site, I actually now complete full builds and am enjoying myself learning and trying techniques a few years ago I never thought to try.  Here is what I completed this year.

1/700 Tamiya Enterprise - Aircraft Carrier GB Jan 2018

1/700 Lexington - Battle of Coral Sea GB Jan 2018

1/700 Akagi - Battle of Midway GB Feb 2018

1/700 Prinz Eugen 1941 GB

1/700 Warsprite 1918 - Ships of the Royal Navy GB Nov 2018

Nice year of work.  I haven't done a ship but imagine they take quite some time, especially the carriers.  I built that dauntless (and avenger) as a boy.  Models you could play with.

N-I-C-E builds. Toast I've tried those 1/700 ships a few times but they always ended up as spare parts. Hands just shake toooooooooooo much. Won 1 in a raffle and gave it to a fellow club member who came to the next show and took a 1st and Best of Ships with it. Some have it and some don't. I'm one that doesn't. I stick to larger sizes as you can see from my avatar.

Makes me want to try a carrier build - those are some very nice ships.

Happy New Year!

Great builds there Scott, some really nice work on those ships. Really impressed with what you guys do with those. Look forward to more next year.

Oh wow those look awesome!!!

And considering all the 1/700th aircraft on the decks of the carriers they probably rate about 2-3 times the work of a single 1/48th aircraft or 1/35th armour kit.
