RMS Leinster - dazzle camouflage

The RMS Leinster, build from LEGO bricks. I've been planning for almost a year, but the build took about four weeks, though there were a lot of hours and some late nights.

 

One side represents the ship in it's original black and red livery when it was launched in 1896. The other side shows the "dazzle camouflage" it was painted in during the first world war. It sank in October 1918, with the loss of over 500 lives, after being hit by German torpedoes just off the coast of Ireland.
