are you keeping it flat hull or are you going the extend it into full hull as that is my intentions on mine, full hull? I use side cutters or even my dremel tool to remove most of the solid railings before using the knife to clean it up, less cutting myself.

the more I look at it.....man..I'm not sure I know what I'm getting in...the extention/modification they made on her, goes full side to side and all the way up.
the build was from castle, up to rear mast covering 1 cargo opening
its not gonna be just a simple little adding..this is gonna be a big part scratch build ship.
as kit is.....she never sailed in the war time pacific...
I guess I'll take it step by step...and resolve as I go along....
anybody has floorplans of her modifcation?....

reducing the too much little by little...
also started on front castle...looks better than the round one from kit
as there was space for 2 LCVP on each side...say about 7 m of free space (1 LCPP is 3.3m wide)...times 2...makes that the added building on rear could only be about 7m large...as ship was only 21.1m large...

Looking good! Looking forward to this build after you 4 stacker build. I have dreams to one day convert the old Revell 4 stacker to an APD and also to convert a transport type ship into the USS Pueblo. Might have to look over this kit and see if the hull would work for that project. Keep up the posts and the good work!
