I think I bought the kit from Amazon, you can get it from the website wonderlandmodels.com also.

I think three months, but I'm sure I would have got it done within a month but I kinda gave up halfway for some reason and didn't touch it for a few weeks I think. I can't remember exactly what happened.
2-3 months I guess

That's pretty cool tbh, it looks super intricate, well done for not giving up entirely!

awesome 🙂 if you do, make sure to buy more paint since the amount they give you with the kit was barely enough for the hull and floors.👍

thank you, some parts were a bit crazy, for example, I had the glue parts together just to make a staircase the size of my small toe.🙃

I plan of building a bigger ship this summer once I finish my exams, I don't think I'll give up on this one either, but it is a lot more complicated.

Oh wow, that's tiny, are there things on the inside too then? Or just the outside? What's the new ship you're gonna try and build? I hope you're able to build it. Looks like a cool hobby tbf.

no not really, just whatever can be seen, there's no design on the inside since it can't be seen anyway, so mainly just the outside.

I'm going to build the 1:350 scale German Battleship Bismarck, I'm gonna have a lot of fun painting that hull😍 if I get stuck, I'll just watch YouTube videos of someone building it also, that's what I did for Titanic when I didn't know how to put on the ropes.
yeah it's a very fun hobby, I love building things, but it's expensive too😁😭

Ohh, yeah, I can imagine. How did you get into this hobby? Don't come across it that often.

YouTube is great for everything to be honest. :rofl:

I was trying to find work experience to put on my personal statement for aerospace engineering, but I could only find ones for those in university, so I decided to build stuff to impress the admissions people. I initially started off with planes but I found it a bit boring so i moved on to building whatever looked cool. like a hydraulic robotic arm and the Titanic. I think I'm going to stick to building ships, maybe a few aircraft.

Being the first in my family to go to university. Didn't even think I'd be able to do it either.

Surviving. I think many people undermine that tbh. The fact that you are alive is an achievement in itself

Probably so far: being the team leader in winning "best engineering design" from Ford at the Engineering Education Scheme Wales 2018, which was in partnership with GE Aviation, GE are now modifying my groups tool to be used in their repair factories. I had to design and 3D print a working model and produce a 40 page report (obviously it was a team effort, but i pulled the strings) but this was probably the best thing I've achieved so far...It was fun and gave me an insight into how to design something according to a brief and make it into a actual thing considering all the maths and modeling of it to make sure it was within the required specification. It also trained me up into being pretty proficient with relatively basic 3D design.

And at my Imperial interview the interviewer said that "It is one of the best things they've seen on a personal statement". Which kinda put a smile on my face, and in the end I received a low offer, but rejected them as I wanted something a little different....getting that offer was also quite an achievement in fairness.

My life and grades are otherwise very mundane nothing really worth pointing out.
