I always liked simple builds, they are a good cleansing for the soul. You did very well painting the lines, I have yet to form a straight and clean line with paint. We hope to see more from you soon Joe.

Very good. I was onboard at various stages of the build at Barrow in Furness, Cumbria at the yard that was known most recently as Vickers Shipbuilding and Engineering.

I too am recuperating from a different medical issue but a real success so hurrah!

There is a hideous back-log of things to build but am now engaged in finishing a 1/700 IJN Hyuga which I bought perhaps 25 years ago, all very therapeutic.

Hi Joe

A great build.

I love the nice paint finish and the figure is a great finishing touch plus adds that little bit of color.

Well done indeed shipmate!

I cant wait to see what your next finished project looks like.

I hope the health is all ok now.
