a quick look at the instructions. It is in a magazine format. the hull is screwed together and it appears that there are hull plates that go over the seam connecting the four sections comprising the hull. Sure am glad they did that! Looks like a pretty straightforward build. the pieces are all big so us old folks can see them, and see where they go. One page of weathering tips by the builder of the kit. I think that will be the thing that takes the longest in this build. Going to need lots of paint cans from Ace Hardware. The color call out for the entire hull is gloss black. Anyone here confirm that?
Email me for any specifics and I will try and help you decide whether or not to make the plunge and buy it.
Nope, but I never let that stop me. I'm building a 1/48 model of the
1854 USS Constellation. When finished, it will be about 6 feet long and about 5 feet high. I have no idea where it will go. I guess I'll have to move the bed out of the spare bedroom. Maybe build a small greenhouse and put it on display in the yard.
Younger kid is living back home now. He thinks all us '60s people are all useless and burned out now. He thinks our generation is worthless.....
Didn't help that I backed his new 2009 Hemi pick up into a pole right after we drove all the way cross country without a hitch. Wow, a couple of months and a new bumper later, and he is STILL pissed....
Thats OK. His MoM just found out the hard way not to call him @ 6am on a school day. Wow, she still hasn't figured out what happened.
Damn, kid's are great until the little F#@$'ers decide to talk a lot and critique you. (I can and do cut him slack, PTSD is ugly...)
and they get wierd about stupid stuff. i used the nephews drive to turn around in and he says it's disrepecting him. says i'm basically flipping him off. it was different when i bailed him out of detroit and got him going here.... now he's an arrogant ingrate. i'm glad he moved back to mommy's town. she changes his diapers. you didn't give him the car, did you? i gave nephew a pu and that was a mistake. children and dogs as mr wc used to say.
And youre disrespecting him ?? Hell, I'd spend the rest of my life turning around there lol.. Naw, I didn't give him the truck, kid has more $$ than I do. Guess thats why he is so PO'd, but then at over $500 mo payment, I can understand. (well maybe for 10 seconds or so...)
