    Built from the Dean's Marine kit S Y Komet from 2009 to 2011 with added features such as brass props, lighting to hull, lower & upper decks, wheelhouse, navigation and mast searchlight, Steam Master smoke module, sound module from Model Sounds Inc. (klaxon, fog horn, twin triple expansion steam engines, 8mm machine gun and 37mm canon. Two machine gunners which rotate. If link below doesn't work just type in SMS Komet on YouTube. Should have posted this when I built it but it was my first build after retiring and new to everything. Lockdown has made me stop to record more. Some of you may have seen it at MB shows (who remembers them?) so we need more videos etc!

    Thanks, much praise indeed! It completely overcame me for the 3 years, I actually "believed" I was a sailor and had to resolve how to maintain and move about the ship.

    Thanks, it's surprising how you soon learn how little you know when you start these projects, it took me 3 weeks to make a lifeboat!

    Thanks, only possible by being inspired by fellow modellers and still humbled by their detail ingenuity and know-how.

    Thanks, she is I think a little too low , should and probably will sometime re-engineer it to replace some of the LA batteries for lighter ones/alternatives but for now I'm driven by other projects. Like Boris.. we've got to get our Navy GREAT again!
