parts milled and drilled to reduce weight.. center engine put together and giving a primer coat.. the out board engines will cover the model's universals and motor mounts  so the will have to removable for service, think I have a mounting method..

As others have already said, lots of things to take note of in this build. Definitely not a three afternoons project! Figures add much to the boat.Large numbers give much visual interest.

thanks, it's fun to work with some colors besides buff,white and grey..  fitting mounting has started from the bow, (before I loose anymore) almost all of the fitting work is complete, except for glazing the windws and making the clearview circle rings.. a few deck mounted ammo boxes need to be made along with the weaving and splicing of the scramble nets..  figures do bring a model to life, (I have bags of 1/96th figures that I need to paint for my 1890s warships)
