Looks fantastic Rob, I got you on the wall Captain. Thank you for participating in my little GB. We all enjoyed watching you put this beauty together.

Now it's time to find a museum to put it in!

Building a kit from your stash is like cutting a head off a Hydra, two more take it's place.

That is one fine DD, Rob!

Hey, Steve!  I know the USS Gato may not be the best looking sub done, but could you at least put a "Completed" beside my name?   I would greatly appreciate it.  Wink

I'm so sorry Gary, I got you up. Nice kit, I built it a few years back. I could never understand the half ased interior they give.

Nice job boss and thank you for joining anothe of my builds. 

If I forgot or missed anyone else please let me know while I reengage in the forms

Thanks, Steve!  I left most of the interior out and just put the pressure hull in.  I still don't know if they actually intended to put more in or not.  Guess they realized that without a clear, plastic outer section the effort to put more detail in was wasted.

Steve,

I noticed Goldhammer (Art Waugh) is still listed on the roster, and while I know he passed away not long ago, as one of his planned builds was a 1/72nd USS Gato, perhaps a fitting tribute would be to post "On Eternal Patrol" beside his name.

It's just a suggestion.  Feel free to ignore it if you think it is a disservice.

Tha's a fantastic idea Gary. I didn't have the heart to remove him. I have his Gato that I'll complete in his honor.

excellent idea!

In the pattern: Scale Shipyard's 1/48 Balao Class Sub! leaning out the list, we're down to that Tamiya P-38F/G to use the other nose art Exito Decal (in-flight for this one), & in keeping with MC's hydra theory I bought another F-5E to do in FROG camo! And I just got a Trumpeter 1/32 F/A-18F!
