This creation is just a bit over 5 feet long. A World War II era US Navy Fletcher class destroyer. I am mostly pleased how it turned out, though it certainly isn't perfect. As with all LEGO ship models, the curve and sweep of the bow proved to be the most problematic. This is the first large scale model I've built, so it was quite a learning experience.

Looks great! The hull looks great, my only critique might be the gunhouses look a bit overscale? Very well done regardless :)
Thanks! Your ship models are first class, so I appreciate the feedback.
This model was quite a learning experience, I'd only made two other previously and I'm still figuring out tricks to some of the intricate detail work. There are a number of issues with the scale on this model that bug me, but it was close enough for what I was shooting for, and I was running against a timeline for a contest so I had to hurry to finish it up.

Nice ship! good job with all the details, this should have way more likes!
Thanks, I appreciate it! I don't think the photos do a very good job of conveying the size and detail of the ship. I struggled to set up an effective spot to photograph it, and to get the lighting right.
