Thought you guys might enjoy my scratch built 1/700 S/Y Endurance. Shackleton's ship on the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition.

The ship is 1/700 scale and entirely scratch built from basswood, steel and brass wire, PE.

By far one of my favorite ships.







































Some progress:















Finished!























Ice Diorama

Unbelievable! And the ice-floe base is the icing on the cake.

Naw, I'm just a guy with somw basswood and too much free time.

I had a nasty cold the whole time I was building this one, so it reminds me of how badly I felt.

I'm building HMS Terror and HMS Erebus from scratch right now. Pics to follow soon

That pretty much covers it.  Holy crap man!  That's incredible!
