I will be finishing the island this weekend. Also got my aircraft package in the mail. F4F's TBM's SBD's need to get this done.

Thanks Jan, Having a bit of a problem with the railings. Seems that I put the wrong railings on the portside. Ohh well too late to change. Hope to be finally done with ship next Monday. Then I'll start on the DD.

SBD's are on deck. Working on the TBF's and F4F's at this time. I will have to wait on the deck equipment from Shapeways latter.
