Very nice. What kind of tool do you use for punching holes? I have a waldron punch and die set and although it works ok it is very slow process and I am limited to the width of the die set allignment pins.

Hi Paper Fan, I had looked for the Waldron set but apparently they quit making it. I'm using a Japanese book drill or screw punch. I ordered it from this place, but you might be able to find it cheaper elsewhere - Japanese Book Drill

Outstanding work, Jim!
I was building this ship a couple of years ago but one day I dropped it from the top of staircase accidentally and middle of hull was cracked... Finally I abandoned her.
Instead of remaking mine I will follow your build

Redhorse, thanks for the tip on the drill, I went to e-bay and pick up one with 5 bits.

Yu, I'm sorry to hear about your accident with the Isuzu. I don't think mine will come out looking as good as yours would have though.

Not much more to report, just tiny details. It is nice to cover up some white spots on the deck!

Looks great, glad to see you're up for some little bits, because Monitor has a few...(!)

Here are a few more tiny parts :D. I'm going to go cross-eyed on these pretty soon. On the depth charge holder I scored and folded before cutting out all the parts, I think it would have crumbled if I hadn't remembered to do that. Now I have to decide on anchor chain and how to color it.

The Isuzu will be going on hold temporarily while I build APA-168's USS Monitor...

That's really outstanding work, Jim.

You're doing full justice to the ship.
