Here it is all finished. The best part of 18 months of building, scrapping, re-building, 3 or 4 sets of photo etch to get certain pieces and two set of decals to get it where it is today. It started life as a Gallery models intrepid kit, the deck was fully scratch built, the starboard elevator re-located, the island is from Steve at Model Monkey, the antenna mast is fully scratch built. This is the second ship I have ever built, my first being Tamiya's 1/350 New Jersey.
I have to send a massive thank you to Jodie Peeler, who without this would not have turned out the way it has.
While it has some inaccuracies I am happy with the outcome.

Very nice work, Craig. I know you're happy to have it done and I'm glad I could be a little help along the way. Enjoy.
