Jerry,

Another great looking build. I need to borrow your skills for a little while!!

I would like to know what you used in the float net baskets? I have some small beads strung together to put in mine.

Jared

LOL Louie i'm always dreaming but if you do decide to build a warship if you need help ask me oh and a 1/48th scale warship is so awesome the 1/96th scale like this one is nice but 1/48th in more stable in the water. One company is Bad ship models.com if you like to build plank and frame the other is fleetscale.com in the UK they have all types american and british or look at loyalhanna dockyard you know them they were in the booth at the show right next to you his name is Don on his site look at voyage kits but you have to email him to see what the turn around time is their kits are just awesome all the running gear struts,a-frames and rudders are already installed and the fittings and everything you need is included in the kit I made two of them the adams and the forest sherman destroyers damm and with your skills you could even make them talk hehehehehehehehehe
