Aaaah! That. Well, I definitely am going to weather this bad boy, but for the most part these smaller vessels manage to stay cleaner longer than the carriers. It's not that I haven't seen parts of certain ships of the class dirty, but Vincennes-especially in her first few years- was a pretty clean ship. This bugs the hell out of me, so I might cheat.
But I did see some very interesting ways of imitating the actual plating ( the welds) on shipmodels. I might give that a try too.

Now the next step will involve working on the hangar, the choppers, and the flightdeck.

Thanks Doug! Well, sometimes I need a hand with things, and you guys live far away, and my wife won't set foot in my hobby room, so it's up to any random critters I find in the house to save the ship.

Not sure yet. A friend of mine served on Normandy. I know which ship he'll be building! He's offered advice on the radar fit during the time he served.

Great job. Truly.

Looking really nice!

I'm working on the same kit right now, I'm building CG-50 USS Valley Forge. It's tempting to shelve it since it's fighting me every step of the way, but I'm determined to finish it, as I think it will make a nice looking model in the end.

Very nice work Laci. Planing on redoing my Orange 1/350 bow section on the Barbey.
