[pid][/pid] 161B This is my first ship, the HMS Lily, which is an exploration ship inspired by the real HMS Challenger. It was kitted out with exploration kit to find out how deep the ocean was, and to dredge it to find out what (if anything) lived down there. In my model I've got enough beds and living area for the 6 crew, plus the lab area with all the samples they've collected. Overview of the hold, with the cooking equipment, table, and the laboratory at the end. A strange bird head in a jar, and a taxidermied dog of some variety. The stern cabin, where the captain and wife sleep. Left to right: Captain, his wife, zoologist, biologist, and two sailors. In the real HMS Challenger, there were over 200 crew and three scientists. (!) More detail pics are available on Flickr. Also a bit more history on the HMS Challenger, which I think was super cool. I should make a proper warship next!
