She Got Leeegs....

Hi All

Pretty scary, huh? Now, where are those Prussian spies?

Well, it's finally happened... Me legs are on!

More correctly, HMSW Gargantua now has all four legs, albeit bereft of pistons and a few other bits here and there, but she's certainly starting to look finished.

The back legs. Feet are unfinished and pistons are missing, but you get the idea...

I have to admit, I'll be mightily pleased when this project is over. It's taken far too long, what with one thing and another, and I'd like to do some much simpler stuff for a bit. Nevertheless, I'm a proud Colonel...

The last thing Her Majesty's enemies will ever see...

Hmmm. Perhaps I'm getting ahead of myself. There are still a lot of things to do... Gatling guns, flags, name plates, controls, steps to the top deck, the back door and gallery...

More pistons to be added here...

Oh well. Back to the grind. Enjoy!

The view from above. Looking pretty ship-shape now.

All The Best!

(p.s... sorry about the picture quality this week - my camera died, so I had to use my phone!)


  1. Ye gods! She's a monster! And she's a British monster - huzzah! =) Looking dashed spiffy there, Colonel.

  2. Not a monster! A triumph of superior British engineering.

  3. Thank you, gentlemen and toodly tim tum tarrah!

    And now, I think I'll spend a night on the pistons...

  4. Prussian spy signing in... Marvellous work Colonel. I think you really need a battlefield commission for this work for the diligence you have shown to seeing it through towards conclusion! Fine work, and detailing.

    My Prussians are sadly still languishing in their tupperware cliplid box... I have recently become enamoured of 'prussians' of a more recent variety, and in a smaller scale! Hopefully I'll back round to giving my Pickelhaube chaps some attention...

  5. Thanks Andy! Glad you're impressed.

    Scott... You're as slow as I am! I think perhaps a battle plan is in order!

  6. Wow, just wow. Worth the hard work.

  7. Why thank you, Monkeylite. Watch this space!
