This my USS Benson from Dragon. Mostly OOB, but with Master Model Oerlikons and Gold Medal PE.

Hi Biggles,
Very nicely done. Very good detail. Really like the streaked weathering. The crew figures really set it off. One area I really struggle with is the rigging. What materials did you use?
Thanks
John

This model is actually a few years old. I was still using EZline for the taught rigging. The cables that have some slack to them are fine brass wire. My water effects at that time were also, at best, adequate.
