Not really my area of interest but I do really enjoy watching such excellent work. It inspires me. Keep it up I will continue to avidly watch

Back to work on this. The San Jose and Okinawa are just about done. Maybe the hardest build I've try to do.

I'm surprised there isn't a conversion set for this, to make the beehive island.

This is coming along nicely. You have captured the look of the original Island. I thought at one time there was a conversion kit out there for this kit, but I don't think it ever came to fruition, lots of well meaning chatter though. I am looking forward to this.

Order from Shapeways has been canceled. Too fragile to be made.
