The yellow item on the table is a cage mast for your next model? Will be fabulous once on it's sea base!

Cheers: Tom

Good progress shots Randy: The little details on the boats make that area between the masts stand out. The six antenna leads coming off the main top look great. Nice and straight and the way the meet at the trunk; "pure serendipitous genius." :cool_2: The extra effort and patience is paying off in a well executed and detailed model. I concur with the yellow thing on the table. Will that be incorporated into your "Texas" as built build? :big_grin:

Outstanding work, Randy. I love the antenna runs on the main mast.

Everytime I think about selling this kit, I see what you are doing, and what Mgunns did with his AZ to PA conversion, and I start to reconsider.

Mark, Tom, and Martin thanks for your comments and encouragement. The yellow item is a candle/citronella candle holder. Now that you like it so much it, will be in all of my status update photos-or at least one! Martin, I ponder building an Arizona conversion either as launched or in the early 20's with the flying off platform and cage masts...It would be pretty! Lots of boats-some steam powered!
