He enjoyed the model very much. I'm sorry but I wasn't able to get pictures of the model with the floats attached. But I try asking him to take a couple.
The next project I have on the stove is the USS Cross / USS Samuel B. Roberts models. The original model was done by Lou Coatney but I've enlarged it and added extra detail to it. I'll be working on them till Zathros sends the parts for the Simon lake to me.
