1/700 Pegasus class hydrofoil (Dragon/Pit-Road)

Recommended Posts

This is the first ship I've ever finished, and these things take way, way too much time. I am used to working in small scales (1/144 aircraft, 1/72 vehicles), but the amount of "human scale" detail you need to add to a ship is almost endless. But I'm finally done with something and it looks pretty good.

The masts are scratchbuilt from stretched sprue. The rails are from Gold Metal Models. The decals are from the Hobby Boss USS Wasp kit except the name on the back, which was custom printed.

And since coins don't mean much in other countries, I decided to use the new universal scale metric - a Lego figure.

That's AWESOME! You did a great job on the railing, which does take some effort.

 

I knew of the Orange Hobby 1/350 version, but not this one.

 

I'd love for somebody to do one of these in 1/72--that would be the perfect scale.

So tiny and yet so much detail! I bet your eyes are crossed. :gr_eek2:

 

 

One of the few benefits of being extremely nearsighted.
