She's a beauty, Robert!

There's something almost mesmerizing about that wonderful camouflage!

Thanks Guy.  And thanks for the ""fjord"" idea. I'm calling this done right now and after the GB has been declared 'Finished', I'm going to add some ship "kill" markings under the German "kill" markings. I drew up some shapes but I've got to get them printed by my friend in the UK and it will take some time before I get them as they're very small and would be a total waste of materials to print by themselves. They're going to be in white which my printer can't print.

There's two types of fin/rudder to choose from, one is a short one with a broad chord rudder, the other is a tall one with short chord rudder. I'm using the tall one but I'm making it taller still.


Well I thought I had made this taller ---- but while cleaning the models in my cabinet over the weekend, I just happened to notice that it is still the same size as the Airframe vacuform kit I built years ago. And that kit I had compared with 1/72 scale drawings in the Aircraft of the Fighting Powers book before I had built it. Plus I know I didn't extend the fin on it too. Very strange -----
