    Like it Julián, I love it.
    Can't wait to see it completed.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Strange that you should say that Julián. I found one house which I still need to paint from when i made my harbour all that time ago.

    Well done.

    Mind blowing Julián. Pure artistry.
    They could be your holiday snapshots, they look so realistic.
    Thank you for posting such an interesting, and inspiring set of pictures once again.
    I know we can all glean a plethora of ideas on how to improve our own dioramas from your work displayed here.
    I only wish that I could see it in reality one day.

    Just took a look at your home page Julián to see what came up for my future models to have on them, and saw your Middleham Castle with the tents in the outer works. I have actually camped in almost that spot when we did a Wars of the Roses enactment one year.

    Oh my lord Julian! This is totally over the top awesome! I believe this is your best work yet. Such detail, nothing is over looked. Boats pulled up on shore, one turned over is a nice touch. The photography is excellent. Your backgrounds are so realistic. I even detected what appears to be a fog bank encroaching on the lighthouse in one or two photos. I can't say enough how much I like this piece of art.

    Yes Rob,

    I add a link for more detail. http://modeljship.com/en/terrain-and...llo-tower.html

    Last week I bought some items from Brigade Models, mi first order and I hope not the last.

    I bought the Castlle of San Antonio and Menorca towers. When I receive I will post photos here to compare the measures with SOG ships.
