I've finished work on the USS Boise, SSN 764, and Improved 688 LA Class Fast Attack Boat, and placed some photos in the Campaign Gallery.

Hey Tom

Say, that came out looking really really nice. I especially like your camo job on the shears. I think hand painting them like that looks far superior to the kit supplied decals.

Yes indeed, I do like it. It inspires me to finish mine. I hope it looks as good as yours.

Take care

Congratulations Mate!
You have a very sharp looking USS Boise there!

As Steve said, it's inspiring!

Thanks. Overall a fun project, and my son was totally blown away when he saw the finished version. I hope it will grace his desk (and the Columbus when I get IT done) for many years to come.

My two gripes were the number of items I had to "re-work" on the OOB to get the kit right, and the lack of good reference information. Luckily I was able to handle the second issue by having my own "consultant". :-) :-)
