This is a really fine build, Redhorse! I've enjoyed tracking it.

Thanks Barry & Don. I've been kind of busy lately, but I've been able to get some more done over the last couple of nights. Here are the rudder and props. Now she should be right side up most of the time from now on.

This looks like a very well designed kit and your worksmanship is trully outstanding!

Very nice work Jim. Clean props.

It looks like the rudder is operable. Is it?

No, unfortunately the rudder isn't operable, didn't even think of it actually. There was a bit of trimming required around the rudder hinge but after that it fit quite nicely and just a bit more shaved off, some drilling and a piece of wire and I think it would work.

It could have fooled me Jim. It looks operable. Like you say though, I don't think it would take much to add that feature.

Looks good anyway, and that's what counts.

Didn't get all that much done on the ship this weekend, but I was able to finish the torpedo tubes.

I like using my hole punch for small circular parts, but I frequently have problems getting it lined up just right because I can't see the part I'm going to cut. I think I've solved my problem by punching a hole with the same punch in a piece of cardboard and then using that to get everything in the right place.

Proceeding full speed ahead. Nice work.

Now's where the fun begins. I love building the deckhouses and superstructure. Good stuff.

You're doing a really clean job there Jim. Keep us posted.
