Quoting Achintya Prasad
Hey, just wondering, but the main guns (the 16 inch) are those properly scaled? I'm planning on a 1/350 scale version of this ship, and I'd make them that size, or possibly even a stud wide.....
I believe they are. all of the drawings that I have found give the width of the turret around 36% of the width of the ship. In my case that is 9 bricks wide. The same drawings give a main gun width around 0.5 bricks wide. There is always a little room + or - with any scale, the end effect is what is important.
That's an amazing Mighty Mo! The detail you put into that is great. Those are some creative methods to creating the various gun mounts too. I've seen her when pulling into Pearl many times but, never went for a tour. You mentioned about the sloped bow deck and the reason for that was to aid in water running off. There's a bit of trivia for you as well as the entire main deck is teak wood to help keep the inside of the ship cooler.
Excellent build. Very accurate. I love all the details that were included and those guns are fantastic. I like how you left the bottom off of the ship to give the illusion of floating in water. Great work!
