No disrespect to Mike at all, but do you have access to plans of Alaska's hull, including faired lines and transverse sections?

Beautiful kit. I just wish it didn't rely so heavily on PE.

Now that is a very elegant vessel.

Might be tempted to delve deeper into the USN.

Thanks for the review. I just received this kit and your review will be most helpful during the build.
