    Thanks guys.

    In hindsight, free handing a 31/9D camo Measure wasn't the smartest idea for a first time build. A simple Measure 21 or 22 would have been less stressful. But not as fun.

    I'm doing a 1/350 FFG-7 short hull now.

    Got the Missouri, waiting for PE and a bit of "Skill improvement". So I can do her justice

    It would be nice if we could bring some life back into the Modeling forum.

    For those of you sitting on the edge of showing your work. Take the leap. Haven't seen and "rivet counters" around here.

    Nord, I'll work on the closeups.
