Attached are some recent photographs of a model I built several years ago for a kit review in the IPMS Journal. The kit is the 1/700 scale White Ensign Models HMS Kelly. As you can see, the kit went together quite nicely. One strength of the kit is the photo-etch fret which provides many fine detail parts. The hull in my example was quite warped, but responded well to straightening after warming in hot water.

I took the photographs on Kodak 400 speed HD film. I used a Canon AE-1 SLR with magnifying lenses, and shot at 1/4 to 1/2 second exposures at f16. I used Kodak Perfect Touch processing and had the images digitized on to a Kodak Picture CD. These files are from the CD.
