Mardis,
She looks like the Connie! Are you planning to put an airgroup aboard? And are you going to place the ship on a sea base?

Hi Mardis,

Wow, she's looking better and better! Now with that delightfully dirty flight deck she's ready for her airgroup. Can't wait to see it come together.

Mardis,

she's looking great! Great modeling, and the 'worn' parts like the 'beaten' flight deck really look spot on!

Cheers
