I'm bowing out as well, too much work left and I don't want to rush it. I'll post a thread for the Pratt later in the WIP section. I got the railings done save for the weather deck but painting is proving a bit of annoyance thanks to adherence issues. A full strip might be in the works. Glad I used acrylics. Maybe I'll actually finish the next group build :big_grin:

Nice build of Hanna there Mark. I really like the contrast of the transitional airwing, especially the natural aluminum F7Us :thumbs_up_1:

Sorry to see a couple not make it, will still love to see them when done. We still have a little over 24 hours to go, the deadline is 11:59PM PST tomorrow night.

Keep at it!

Matt

I hate to write down that I will not make it. :mad_2: :mad_2:

It has been a very very busy period for me. I was on deployment to Somalia form April till August, then I got transfered and my new deployment was at Libya, from early September up until now... :dead: :dead:

I will try to finish my model as soon as I return home...

Nice builds everyone, cannot wait to see the results... :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1:

Alright everyone, well that was a very fast 6 months! It looks like for this build we are looking at the following builds for awards,

Gordon Bjorklund -- 1/700 USS Long Beach CGN-9 (Cyber Hobby)
Mark Mckinnis -- 1/700 USS Hancock CVA-19 (ISW)
Bob Cicconi -- 1/700 HMS Exeter D89 (Skywave)
Gary Griffith -- 1/350 USS Reuben James FFG 57 (Academy)

If any of the above builders have any additional photos that they would like to be considered in the judging, please e-mail them to me or post them here. Great builds, this may be the toughest judging I have ever had to do.

Stay tuned for updates!

Matt

Ok, my decision is made and boy it wasn't easy! I have sent the ratings off to the Sponsors to get their input and consent on the winners. Once I hear back from them, I will post the results.

Great job everyone :thumbs_up_1:

Matt

JT,

You know, I was just thinking that the other day. I was thinking that since we have done Auxilleries, Destroyers(2x) and Cruisers, that perhaps it's time to have the epic showdown and decide who the Queen of the fleet really is.
"Battleships Vs. Carriers" I don't know, something to mull over, but with the Dreadnought, Warspite and soon to be Queen Elizabeth there are some very exciting kits that give the Battlewagons a little edge in competition to reclaim their title. I will probably put it to a vote again if you all want me to run the next one again. With Christmas just around the corner, maybe we could do a quick one with December 25th being the deadline called "A Silent Night with the Silent Service" since we haven't touched Subs yet.

Food for thought

Matt

If you go for the subs please make the decision quick as I'm nearly ready to delve into my first one on over 35 years.

Sounds good Matt, I enjoy these builds even though I never finish the ships!

BB's vs Carriers sounds good, and a 2 month Sub one is also pretty cool! Should be easy and quick.

Agree. I haven't done a sub in more than 10 years and I have just acquired an early HP models Surcouf at ESM. I was going to start her soon-ish but I can wait for a quick GB.
