Looking forward to seeing this one. It's a different looking carrier.

Awesome work! You're getting me inspired to tackle a naval subject, especially after listening to an 'On the Bench' podcast on building ships. What age is the kit? Going together alright thus far?

Thanks Mate. The Kit is about 10 Years old. It is going together ok at the moment. After working on the 350 Bismarck, some of the Parts are Tiny. (Need Scotch). If you want a nice Naval Kit to work on then I would suggest Tamiya's 1-350 USS Fletcher....Cheers Mark
