All right, finally some progress! I haven't seen much work from you lately! Are you enjoying the summer OUTSIDE of your hobby room, or something :heh: ?
of course, entirely sctratchbuilt ships like that JFK take a long time..
keep building, man, this is an interesting ship!

So, you are working on how many ships at a time?

Cheers: Laci

Looking good brother! And I commend you for taking on a model with the flaws this one is rumored to have, quite a challenge. But given your other builds, I can't wait to see her when she is done.

Don't worry about it Red, she's coming along nicely. Keep at it man :thumbs_up_1:

My only suggestion would be to open the port side elevator door as well to show off the other side of that detailed hangar.

Why this angry smily gtbred? Were these 52 days a bad experience?

However, I follow your report here since the beginning and looks impressing what you make with this resin kit here until now! :thumbs_up_1:

Nice job red! I found the ISW helos to be a bit lacking, but the new ones from bronco are very nice, if you are looking for something a little nicer and easier to work with.

I'm not using the CH-53E from the kit I had some CH-53D's made for me in resin. The CH-46's are o.k. just need to be clean up. Tony Bunch sent me a Huey from L'Arsenal,very nice. Should be done with the starboard side tonight.
