Hey Check can I still get in. I'm finally starting to settle in from the big move. I'd like to enter a Revellogram Bf110G-2 in 48th. Thanks TJ

Nice to have you with this GB, too, tj.  I've added the 110 to the build roster.  Thanks for your participation.  Looking forward to watching your progress.

Just popping in with a progress report on my 1/700 Lexington.

Got much of the PE installed, am all masked up and ready to lay on the top coat of 5N dark blue.

Looks like everything is coming along very fine, Scott.  Nice looking ship!

Back to building, or painting again.  Doing touch ups and test fitting the deck.

Very sharp looking ship, Scott.  I always like the look of a carrier.

Great work, Scott.  Nicely applied subtle weathering on the flight deck.  How'd you achieve that?

I spray a base coat of mahogany and teak, then light coats of deck gray and blue.  There is a lot more weathering left to do.

It's very effective, Scott.  

I tried some weathering with acrylics on USS Hammann last year, but I can't say that my skills were too good, so I cleaned it off.

I suppose I should practice more, but I hate to ruin a decent paint job with my indecent weathering attempts.
