Model Aircraft Carrier

For those interested in model warships I attach herewith a photo of the RN aircraft carrier EAGLE of 1918. This model was constructed from balsa wood by the late Mike Earll. Hope it is of interest.

From the woodgrain in the base board the scale looks like 1/700 or 1/1250.
I just bought my first 1/1250 model of the 'Ocean Monarch' and must say the amount of detail that goes into something that small is impressive.
