Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've posted an update.

I've steadily been working away on the ship when time has allowed. I've had to back track to correct some mistakes and do some rebuilding, but I'm currently focused on the fit out and finishing off the last superstructure sections. She's well and truly on the road to completion. Recently I've gotten on the 3D printing train and have taught myself 3D CAD modelling, purchased a 3D printer and have been developing prototypes of the ship's fittings. This has proved a challenge but a very enjoyable one and well worth the effort and expense. As the fit out proceeds I'll produce the final prints of everything, glue it all in place, then I'll move into final painting and finishing.

She's coming along nicely and is starting to look like a Kirov. I'm really enjoying the build.

Looking good there Carl :thumbs_up_1: Good to see more 3D printing going on. I am really enjoying the experience. Perhaps at some point we might be able to swap some files.
