This was my first kit ever. There were some bumps in the road as with any first of anything. But key was learning from those bumps. Time was 175 hrs or work over the course of 3 months.20201102_184827.jpg20210108_134640.jpg20210108_154939.jpg20210108_160901.jpg20210109_210850.jpg20210109_212300.jpg20210109_215802.jpg20210111_093419.jpg20210111_185738.jpg20210111_185743.jpg20210111_201827.jpg20210112_234840.jpg20210114_011831.jpg20210114_170627.jpg20210115_102432.jpg

At this point I was short on second layer of planks so had to wait till occre sent some extras. They were very fast with their service. So in the time being I started to work on other aspects of the ship.

OcCre has great customer support, the provided me a piece of 4x4 walnut I was short of for my cross section build.

Your ship work is looking good, keep the photos of progress coming.

Great build logs and what I have learned to like are all the "how too" in help section.

Lots of stuff to review and watch, to help learn.

What part of the Good Old USA do you call home, lots of members scattered about.

You can edit your profile to list state or city as you like so others know where your from.

FYI, the flag is based on the IP location you log in from.

I spent better part of 15 years up in Alexandria while in the Air Force at the old England AFB. As well as two years in Shreveport at Barksdale AFB.

My wife (the Admiral as we call them here) is from Alexandria as well.

We used to have friends who lived deep in the south LA who were in the oil field business, until they lost jobs in the bust back in 90's, we used to drive down and visit them once a month.

Nice cabinet for displays and good starting collection.

I have the same Panart Gun Placement in my collection.

One person here is working a display where he is using two of that kit to make full width model of the gun deck.
