Clean and solid inbox, mate. . .thanks for your time, energy, and efforts!

And isn't the new review layout fantastic? Much more reader friendly, IMHO, and a better overall appearance.

Keep Modeling!

Excellent review Kenny! She's a bit out of my (Child-support-paying ) reach at this time, but (Realizing that my reply is close to a year old-hey, it's been a ROUGH year... )
I have close to 225 Full aspect & detail Pics of the "Showboat" as she sits today. If there's enough interest (like, anybody, I guess..) I can probably upload these to the site for general use. Even got some closeups of the spare Prop & some of the ammo & stowage. Oh, yeah, some interior shots of the Gun Directors, If anyone's nuts enough to get that deep into the details...
Anyway, Thought I'd offer, & If I get a nibble I'll commence w/ the uploading.
She's a fine Lady to this day, & I hope to see some scale manifestations to do her justice.
Clear skies & Following Seas,
LD.
