Mardis,

she's looking great! Great modeling, and the 'worn' parts like the 'beaten' flight deck really look spot on!

Cheers

Hi Mardis,

Wow, she's looking better and better! Now with that delightfully dirty flight deck she's ready for her airgroup. Can't wait to see it come together.

Mardis,

Great detail all around. When you add the air wing she will really look awesome.

Started on the air wing. Decals from Stan are outstanding. Don't know how he does it.
