Mardis,
She looks like the Connie! Are you planning to put an airgroup aboard? And are you going to place the ship on a sea base?

All the above. But she is the Hawk!

Just put on the last of the hull parts. Also prime the hull for the paint later. Next week I will place the aircraft and equipment in the hangar bay.

No,Trumpeter just made the Connie with the round curve on it. So I have the curve sponsons I got from Shapeways for this model. So this will be Kitty Hawk instead. I have the J.F.K and beehive BigE to do also. Thanks for looking!

Looks great Mardis!! Really cool work!

- did I understand you right? Are you going to build the Connie as well, from the new Trumpi kit? If so, I am certainly looking forward to follow you during that one, as well!!

Cheers,
Jan
