Absolutely fan-freaking-tastic.  You put your all in her.

 

As a side note, University of Arizona main quad has a full size main deck perimeter outline in brick.  Really have to see it from above to notice it.

DRUMS01
I have already purchased the Tamiya Yamato in 1/350 along with the Lions Roar, and Eduard detail kits, decking, etc. (smile) but that will be next year.

I will absolutely be looking forward to that Ben!

Here is your ribbon should you want it.

I've put her on the wall.

Admiral....the good Captain should be put in for the Navy Cross for what he accomplished with the Banner kit. 

That thing is in the highest tradition of the Navy.

I think you're right GH. I believe I'll put in the paperwork.

Ben: Congrads!!!

 

And the LST-1 is still sitting here. Steve is going to beat me. I was hoping this GB would motivate me to get off my butt and build the darn thing. But I keep fooling around with other stuff... Embarrassed

Don't worry Gam. You have it down, you have all the time you want.

I've been away for a long while now. I've just been slammed with things to do and modeling has fallen behind. Since my last post where I had dropped the nearly complete Peleliu I have been reworking the kit. I had to purchase another Tarawa class ship to rob some parts off that got lost when I dropped it and others that were damaged beyond repair. Since I had to do all that I also decided to get some PE for the ship and make it look a bit better. I ran most of the railings, safety catch nets and antennas on the ship. The PE is super small and very hard to work with in this scale, so some of it just can't be done by me. The ship however, does look much better and more to scale with this added. Here is the shots just before heading off to repaint kit. As long as I don't drop it again I should get this done before too much longer.

Thanks, that PE just about did me in. That was a huge chore. I'm not a fan of this scale and have no plans to work in this scale again. 1/350 or bigger from now on.
