congratulations on a very fine build Dave!

A few are definitely in order to mark her commissioning!

Interesting to see how small she was compared to the Shokaku in the background!

PS. For canvas dodgers a lot of people just paint white glue straight onto the railing and then hand paint them

Russell,

A few beers were definitely harmed in the making of this ship. I thought about the white glue method but wanted to make sure that the railings in the rear were not covered.

Si, thanks for the kind comments

Dave,

Amazing finish! She is a fine looking ship packed full of action, worth first place for sure.
