I do have to admit that I catch myself just staring at the BT18 in it's display case as the finish of the Dark BRG really is by far my best finish to date. The trouble with that is now I have to repeat it or even kick it up a notch.

Sounds a lot like what happened to the Royal Navy after they commissioned the Dreadnought



Russell,
Those British Dreadnoughts were cutting edge back then, I somehow doubt that my modeling & painting abilities are anything more then middle of the road at best.

Joel



Ah, I think you missed my meaning Joel: I just meant that when Dreadnought commissioned, it made everything else in the RN's fleet obsolete.... and everything else after had to surpass her.

This is your best build to date, you've raised the bar, now you have to surpass it

Russell,
I see said the blind man. I'll be making my intro post for my new build shortly. This build is 180 degrees the opposite of the BT18.
