About Kenny Loup (gator)
FROM: LOUISIANA, UNITED STATES

I was the kid that his dad would say "Hey, there's a war movie on." and come running. As a kid, I dived head first into military history. We would always have to stop at the USS Alabama on our way to Florida. I also got to visit the Seawolf Park and the Alamo on vacation, too. All things I want ...

Yeap Kenny A nice looking torpedo boat you've got there - it turned out very good, and the wood paneling is masterly done! Congratulations Skipper

Well that's a pretty nice build, I really like the colour contrasts between the woods (the model's one and the base) as well as metals (the black of the model and the brass of the plaque). Nice textures and a really fine build! JB

Great build Kenny, I had no idea such things even existed! I agree with Rui, your wood panelling is very well done. I like the base, it accentuates the model very nicely. Frank

Kenny, Sorry for the late comment, I really must get organised. Well what can I add the the comments already passed, not a lot. The choice of wood for the base complements the colours used on the model and result in added effect, well done. The build of the model its self is very clean and well finished, the wood paneling is expertly executed and I really like the subject matter. 10 out 10 my dear boy, well done PeteV
