Hi, Scott:

sorry to hear about the difficulties with Missouri.  But--take your time.  Even though the "official" close date is 31 December, I'll be leaving the GB's up for anyone who signed up to finish.

I'm behind as well; still working on the '44 build of Iowa.  Sad

Quick update, this should be the last one before i wrap this up. I got the sides weathered with a very light oil wash and then sealed with a flat coat. I forgot to take a proper pic of the side but its very subtle. I then started fitting it out with the wood deck, railings and a few otehr bits.

And this is whats left to be added. Every thing has been painted, weathered and mat coated before fitting.

And the last bits to be put together were the torpedo's, quite a bit of work on these. the propellers on each one had 8 small PE blades.

And the CMK mines.

Just got to get those painted up and primed and make up the dodgers for the side rails.

Thank you, it's a bit grungier than it appears in the photos but this was at the end of the war and things were probably cleaner. I can only do so much with the lighting I have and a cell phone.

I'm happy with it!

Excellent, Ed!  Outstanding aircraft.  Everything comes together to make a very attractive plane.  All the markings and paintwork are beautiful.

Do you have a preference for the final finish photo?  I like the first and the fourth, but that's just me.

Thanks for being part of the GB.  It's been great seeing your work.
