Mark, Thomas, Russ and Michael,

thank you so much for you kind comments!!

And thank you for following and staying with me over the last years, over several ups and downs and almost stalling periods!

Your - and all others here on MSW - support was not only helpful, it was crucial at times. Despite all setbacks, by now I love her seeing her with the rest of the fleet!

Thank you again and cheers,

Jan

This has been an amazing thread to follow for a Shipwright beginner like myself. All of the highs and lows all rolled into one story with a spectacular ending. Great job getting Hood settled with the rest of the fleet, and thanks again for sharing so much detail of your work along the way.

Cheers, D

Russ, Damian, Mark and Si,

thank you for your very kind words and for your support during the three years of the build!
I'm glad that sharing some detail, and all the highs and low during the time was helpful - sharing it and getting feedback and motivation fromm all of you here at MSW helped me a lot to continue and finally finish and commission my HMS Hood!

The badge actually came with the Lion Roar set, its very pretty!

Cheers and thank you all again,

Jan
