Hmmm, I'm thinking the punishment should be as long as the build....

As soon as I sober up I'll figger it out!  Posting to the finished build thread now.

I hope it's not a keel hauling, that would be a considerable time under the hull Indifferent

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

Great looking Stringbag you've got there Steve! Like CAG said in Flight of the Intruder "Keelhauling is serious on an aircraft carrier". Maybe he should have to clean up King Neptune after the pollywogs become shellbacks.

Well I'm not  Shelback but I am  Golden Dragon (international date line). For the Coast Guard,  that's nothing to sneeze at.

Nah, I've found through experience that keelhauling has a poor effect on personnel levels.  But there is a dire need for men on the bilge pumps of this leaky ship.  Go there until I reach a final decision, matey.

Long-time readers of this may recall that I did a Frog 1/72 Swordfish for the Taranto Raid where my mother-in-law's wartime boyfriend was an observer in L4R.

 

I finally got around to building the (much, much) better Airfix kit and photographing it.  Doing interesting FAA dioramas is hard so I opted for the folded wings coming up on the elevator.

The Admiral says Well done, and an extra ration of rum all around for the crew.  But not the ones on the bilge pumps.
