Thanks Ray Im pleased with how she turned out.


However the ballast test showed I needed to add 400g port side and 500g starboard side, which also trimmed her to the correct water line and corrected a list.


Once the ballast was added she preformed well. So once Ive completed all the outstanding work to finish her,  Ill post a Video of her sailing.

Yes, she did look a little light ship  %)  [or very clear water], however she looks superb  :-))   ....looking forward to the video.....


I didn't realise the Lookouts rated an armchair, thought there was only 1 on the Bridge

A bit off thread Dave <*< ....but is that not the Admiral Kutnetsov [Russian Aircraft Carrier] that the CO & XO are parallel shadowing from afar?

Dave....it is really an amazing set of photographs you have of these DDG's and in Operational conditions


The Carriers profile is unmistakable....... :o  ........this now Chinese carrier was born as a Kuznetsov 

The Wiki people confirm the Liaoning was originally laid down in 1985 for the Soviet Navy as the Kuznetsov-class ......

Derek, yes I did know it was ex Russian navy, but the photo was of her in Chinese service with USN doing the watching brief  :-))

Yes I do, as I need a good selection of photos, due to the plan I have is not lacking detailed and has a lot of items missing. So I just use the plan for making the superstructure and general layout.  All the detailing is based on actual (2020) pictures of the ship I have and others in her class that are at the same stage of life refits.
