Haven't posted any works in progress photos before (I think) but thought that today would be the appropriate day. This is the 1/125 LCT/LCU kit from Lindberg. Pretty much the only thing original is the hull and forecastle (hull shortened by about 3/4" and forecastle sides shortened to match WWII Mark 6). The rest is pretty much scratch with the exception of the 20mm mounts and the ready service lockers from Shapeways. Photos aren't the best, but still wanted to share. Please note that the backdrop was only used in memory of this historic date 74 years ago is awaiting proper retirement by the local scout troop.

Thanks Paul. Yes, unfortunately I have quite an extensive collection of various Evergreen sheets and shapes-but always need just one other size or shape! Just starting to tackle the anchor winch. Have worked out some drawings/dimensions and just this evening started cutting out sideframes. Hope to make progress over the weekend.

Thanks,
Dave
