Proud to say this build won Best Ship and also my first Best in Show at the 2013 Baton Rouge, LA Cajun Modelfest. I spent about a year on the build working on it off and on. I did not want to rush it and also put a lot of time into researching it. She is painted in 5-S Sea Blue (not wanting to open a can of worms here ) as described by some as being the most likely scheme during the Pearl Harbor raid. I hope you all enjoy the photos, yes it took me a while to post the photos, the contest was in May. :big_grin:

Excellent photographs of a well-deserved award-winning model, mate! Someday when I grow up (heh) I hope to get as good with ships...and planes, tanks, etc...

I saw this in person. The pictures barely do it justice.

Sweet! When was the show, I missed it... Passed through there on the 8th on the way to USS Texas and checked out the Kidd. Fantastic museum there. Well deserved award, wish I could seen her in person!

Can we get these photos updated, GreyGhost?

I've been using them as reference material and Photobucket has now blurred them out.

It's Photobucket's latest extortion scheme.

GreyGhost has three options: either pay them money, download the images and put them on Imgur or Flickr...or edit them so they can be attached to the post.
