Phenomenal, absolutely phenomenal!!

I really like the touch of the burnished brass on the main gun barrels.

Not that I'll ever do it, but how did you did you do it?

Congrats!

Hey Sean, Yes it is the 1/72 Revell Gato. I built it as the USS Drum that is also located at the USS Alabama museum. I used Eduard photo etch kit and a highly bashed conning tower. Im actually not even finished with it yet.

That is some outstanding work!

BTW, is that the Revell 1/72 Gato I spy on your display shelf? May I ask what boat you built her up as?
