    It just needs a stand now so you can get it out of the corner and on to the fireplace mantel.

    Looks like you had some fun.

    I'd be tempted to physically secure the display base to the hull.

    I don't trust anyone but myself to set it on a stand right, and even I make mistakes in haste.

    Looks great, clean up after building a model is my least favorite part.

    Is it considered poor taste to add human figures to it?

    Perhaps a sea witch or mermaid to complement it?

    I went to a building show a few months ago, the children could not keep away from my architectural models, drawn to it like a moth to flames.

    Good reason to perch this as high as possible, out of eye/line site of children.

    small figures will add that touch of realism to the ship and why put it out of eye sight of children , its how they learn as we all still should , never stop learning every day I every way learn some thing new and fill the voids and dark corners of your mind !! !
    I envy people that have the patents to be able to sit for long hours to make models . I used to design and make my own when I was at school but not now . congratulations on your master piece :p:D:p

    My last architectural model was destroyed that way, I could have fixed it but I was done with it anyway.

    Kept in sight but out of reach , look but don't touch . just about all kids have no respect for things we have as treasures because they live in a grab and smash world , its the parents you can point the finger at !!:mad:
