The Ships at XI AMA Expo

XI Almada's Modeling Association Expo
Ok... This is not a contest, it's only the chance for us modelers to show our community, what we have been doing since last years Expo.

And I must say that I am very happy for the number and quality of some of the ship models that showed up this year! With a total of 18 plastic/resin ship models and 7 wood ship/boats we were able to put together two full tables!
For the first time we had a trio of modelers working on their 1/700 current projects (Me, Filipe Ramires (_Admiral_Fil) and Pedro Brandão) and also three LHS, which helped some of our needs.

Looking back, I think I got a little carried away with my trigger finger :) but I hope that this could show you what we are making in this small rectangle on the south-western point of Europe.

Some very nice work there. I'm biased, but I really liked that HMS York.

Nice show, Skip, beautiful artistry! (Your "Orp Kaszub" turned out wonderful, by the way! ) Thanks for sharing! ~Mark

Very nice Skipper. The HMS York stands out to me, but then it is a cruiser. Alround the work is very good and lots of different subjects. Ciao Luciano
