I know you went with the racer but I could really see a torpedo nestled between those floats

I almost went for overall Glossy Sea Blue and Royal New Zealand Air Force Pacific roundels. The chance to use my Green Civil registration decals trumped the military version. Adios, Larry.

Can you build a 2nd Tsunami in the above finish?
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Memo to the Big Gimper!

No 2nd Tsunami. Too many other projects in the pipeline.

Thanks, everybody for the nice words.

Adios, Larry.
