1/550 SMS Elsass (Scratchbuilt)
My model of the predreadnought battleship Elsass. I have been building models at a quick pace during our pandemic lockdowns as I suddenly have most days free. I had a lot of trouble fashioning the hull. I made several mistakes that required major surgery to the hull. This has been happening to me a lot lately. Still, the model turned out all right, mainly because the original ship was quite handsome. Some of the pictures include the other members of my small German predreadnought fleet, Brandenburg and Schleswig-Holstein.
