Yes, I am still building a lot, but world situation is bad, nobody knows, what is waiting for us tomorrow. I am traveling to work 3000 kilometers, so I have not so much time for ships as years ago, but still I do my best. Ships and subs are everywhere ;-)

Well in one way with what your saying you can or maybe get some good pictues of the navys. BUT I do understand on what your saying I just pray nothing gets out of hand. I do agree on what your saying in one way it would be kind of scarry like you say you just dont know . I wish you luck. and lets hope things just stay com. YES I still keep an eye on the ship boards.

I cant leave compleaty I still have to come back and give you all a bad time and try to help with the years I was building and try to some one from getting into the problems I had . IF I can keep just one person out what took many years to learn it is well worth my time OK talk to ya soon

Was built on the same chassic a lepard chassic and scale like the M88 tank retriver. These are 124 scale and the turret goes all the way around on the duster.
