Hi and welcome, would love to see the model.

I've seen the arizona BTW, or what can be seen of it under the water at Pearl Harbour, a truly fascinating day out to the memorial and Pearl Harbour which was coupled with a WWII DUKW to transport us there and back and go for a cruise on the water before returning

That looks very nice, how long did it take from initial planning to completion.

Wow, you are a very patient man, think we'll need to get Graham to extend the Group build time if you're planning on taking part in one :smiling3:

It must be very nice to look at it and know that everything in it is made entirely by yourself though.
