your getting there ron. ;D

out of interest what are you building out of ? from the first few pictures it looks like your build is partly sheet metalwork.
keep up the good building.

1:48th scale for my ships. Large enough to show gratuitous detail, small enough to stay married.

Hi Ron

Fantastic build. This is the type of project I dream of starting. Being a newby to R/c Boat building, craftsman like you inspire me to one day, when I learn the trade to build something....

Absolutely first class Ron. thanx for the encouragement on model boats. at least in 1/72 theres no probs with figures. that is, if your putting any on, i think they add a certain, something, to a model!

Hi Ron, looking good, but, the main gun director abaft the bridge???
 Can you tell me what mark it is as it does not compute to any US ships at all.
 Just a thought. I mean the square box below the antenna.
 Just incase.
