Beautiful models.  Which one is your favorite?

Also,  since you already did one, I guess Hellers instructions were not a problem but what did you do different between them if anything?

My first has been underway for years, but I seem to be stalled on it.  Maybe the neat pics you are posting will inspire me to get it back on bench.

Santa, absolutely stunning work!  The detail paining is mind-boggling.  If you don't mind me asking and keep in mind this is from a guy who has two not started 1/96 Revell U.S.S. Constitutions in his stash, why build two side by side?  Once again just beautiful masterful work and please keep posting pictures as you progress with the builds.

TJS   O- I started the first one some years ago in Washington. I bought the one I am working on, on ebay-started. The hull has the worst worp I have ever seen, the decks were un trimed and glued together flat ensted of sloped, the curved piece the ancur cables pass through was missing+and the quorter deck+ one piece of quorter deck cabin face was missing-all of the poop deck cabin face was missing, and one of the box seets that goes up against in was missing, And 14 of the 16 cannons for thows decks were missing.  I have no way to replace the cannons, so I will continue the build with out them.
