Trying again I *think* because of da bug…

My father popped round today so I could order him some Thoroughbred ironclads. When he did he brought with him some scratch-built models built to a scale of 40' to the inch that he'd been working on so I thought I'd share not bad for an 84 year old partially sighted landlubber!

It's not the bug, it's the way you're posting the link. Just post the pure image URL and you'll be fine.

I love scratch built stuff, not because you couldn't just buy it but the joy of making something.
Nice job, I find the scale part to be the toughest part, and the smaller the harder.
