        Those pictures are incredible. I really wish I could understand the captions. I would love to know some of the technical details.

          Those images are incredible and the details are astounding. Look at one of the last 'images' which is actually a video of the deck lights being turned on: with one flickering deck light (as you would normally find on any ship)! That is what I call attention to detail.

          Each time when I see a model such as that, I can't but help dreaming of having a large scale SS Norway model with the same amount of detail and workmanship. If I ever turn to become a millionaire myself, I'll have myself one built. In the meanwhile, there is no way in the whole wide world I could get the knowledge and patience to build anything like that.

          Just simply amazing!

            That was the one I reacted to also...
            Do we really think that much alike?

            I read on that site that they use somewhere between 5.000 and 6.000 hours to complete a model, and with a norwegian work-week of 37,5 hours, which makes 1.950 hours pr. year...., you get a small picture of how much work 5.000 to 6.000 hours are....

              I think it only took me 2'400-2'600 hours to build my airplane. I can not imagine spending 6'000 hours on something so small and detailed.

              I might have to try some translation sofware on the photograph captions. I am dying to learn more about the drive system. What is that box between the two motors? Is that a water cooled speed control?

              I would love to see that X bow cutting through the ripples on my pond.
