It's great to see an update on this fantastic floaty thing!

Love the deck work and look forward to seeing the new bridge.

This is one of the best nautical scale-o-ramas I've seen yet!

Made progress.  With bridge and mast mounted, the main items are done.
Are numerous small things to do and to get parts for.
Maybe a sailor or two on deck would help.
Pictures attached.

Looking great Bill. Keep up the good work.

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

Looks like a million bucks and I really like the new wheelhouse!

Have you considered adding tail fins? Just think of the increased speed & intimidation factor...

The wheel house does look great. A couple sailors would give the mind a reference to what scale it is. Looks fantastic all around!

Thanks all.  Good to hear you are liking it.  Is rewarding to have this much done.  Made a lot of work for myself with parts not meant to go together and scratch building.
Looks Russian - Hmmm,,, is that because bridge is set well back ?

Think it's because I've seen Russian gunboats of similar design somewhere.

The Finns had some interesting ships similar to this.

Tail fins can block guns.  However could add chrome exhaust pipes !
