I hadn't thought you were nearly this far along - but then, once you've got the deck, hull and island substantially completed, I guess everything "pops" pretty quickly from there, eh?
Meantime, Kevin, definitely I would keep a wary eye on that gainful employment - it is clearly the bane of modelling (which is why I...well...oh well, never mind! ).
Seriously though, the build looks fantastic, Kevin - and I particularly like the foamy patches of your water now, too - will definitely look forward to more closeups/finished shots of every part. And while there's no requirement to include portraits of Matt Stein Models parts - you do see how I am grateful to exploit any mention of them . But seriously Kevin, you do make them look just gorgeous, buddy, and I'd love to see closer of your sparkling, installed 5" guns - and of course your AEW SkyRaiders and Trackers - as well. Did you decide to leave the SeaBat/H-34s off of this build, or are we going to see (one or more of) them, too?
Bottom line: outstanding, Kevin - do keep 'em comin', buddy!
