Looking good on those IJN CLs.

I'm very nearly done, just a few bits missing and the railings.

I have to confess I've not put in any further time on my Mikuma. I'll start up a thread once I do, though.

up to my pits with work, working projects for nationals and working on the nationals committee for the make-n-take, Louisville is complete but IIRC requires a little touch up for presentation.

I have gotten more work done on Indianapolis. I will try to get photos up this weekend. I have both the upper and lower hull painted, along with the main deck.

Yes, will join with a Trumpeter 1:700 Bismarck. Just testpainted the deck a while ago and assembled 2 gun turrets. Awaiting now a PE set from Eduard, then I will start the build! :thumbs_up_1: :smallsmile:

Good news: found ALL my spare PE for the Maine. I was shocked that it somehow ended up in a Tamiya Bismarck box. Heh. Moving.

Anyway, I'll get cracking on repairing and finishing the Maine once I'm done with Fletcher.

Another month gone. Slow going for me but some more details added and the flight deck is about done, will post more photos in a week. There is no need to rush a build, this group build is just to encourage everyone keeping modeling! Great job everyone so far!

Look over the first post and let me know if I got everyone is listed on the first post and the link to your builds.

Keep it up! :thumbs_up_1:

Another month gone. Time for a check in on progress. My Yahagi is progressing nicely. Hoping to be done by mid September.

My Yahagi progressed a little, with work, ooh shiny syndrome and pinging a part, she came to a halt. Hope to figure a replacement for the pinged part and resume full bore construction soon. Great job to everyone else so far. I will add a few shots of where she is at on her thread.

Good work everyone who posted the past month. One month left! Summer has flown by, for me anyway. I'm hoping to be done with my Yahagi before the end of the month. I'm on the fitting out stage anyway.

How is everyone else progressing?

I am a failure. I did barely anything to my Mikuma and haven't had the motivation to do more.

So Summer isn't technically over until the 23rd, right?

I finally repaired this and will have it done within the week.
