The Seawise Giant hull taking its general shape .A lot of putty and a lot of sanding but i am pleased the main hull lines are correct in scale and pretty  straight .This is going to be placed  in a dio depicting it as it was crossing the Hormuz straits  and along side it  the USS Iowa  which was patrolling in that area at the time (1988).The difference in size is  more than obvious.This ship must have been quite a spectacle  when viewed in real time .I thought i ll take a few quick shots  against a US carrier too just to get a better understanding how big that thing was.


  1. Suddenly I realized that Americans had "pocket battleships" ;)

    Thank you

  3. the Plans i am using are from the 1/400 JSC paper model of Jahre Viking.

  4. Looks great so far, Kostas.
