working on a 1/426 scale Arizona by building torpedo bulges, redoing the shape of the bow & underneath the stern & installed a whole new deck. got the upper half of a 1/350 benson\ gleaves destroyer from a member on modelwarships.com for cutting down in length a gearing class destroyer to a sumner class destroyer 1/350 scale. he also sent a medium size box full of ship parts & pe including 2 1/350 scale twin 5"38cal enclosed gun mounts. as I don't like water lined ships I lengthened the benson\ gleaves hull to make into the uss porter after it was modified with dual purpose 5" guns & building the lower half of the hull using a modified bread & butter method to allow that lower hull to be hollow.
