Hmmmm;

     Looks like you got a darned good drawing Board there mate; Couldn't see where it was damaged when you got it finished, Good Job.

     Lived on a Gearing Fram Destroyer back about 63 years ago. We, the Engineering and Damage Control personnel were housed aft. Over the Screws  Eh Wot?

      I practice with Metal Earth Models to perfect my P.E. Work to a better standard .Now I can do a twin forty Mount in P.E. in 1/350 with no problems.

Wow, your build is turning out really nicely.  The Warspite and her sisters were such nice looking vessels.

Super nice ship steve! You do some great work. Nice job on that deck btw as well. Looks like you got any gaps sorted and looking tight

In the pattern: Scale Shipyard's 1/48 Balao Class Sub! leaning out the list, we're down to a Monogram 1/72 SR-71 and 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!

Not enough room--so the men were fit around "the weapon" rather than the weapon being fit to the men.  Basically the same sort of thing that happens in submarine design.

Beautifully done and one of my top 10 favorite ships (and I have a lot).

Love the PE work, I admire anyone with the patience to work that evil metal with your level of detail and skill, great job.
