Mark,

I have this kit in my stash and I just finished building the three deck Akagi kit so this will be most interesting to see how this one goes together. The fun part was putting in all of the support beams, Good luck.

Mark,

Nice progress, she looks easy to put together than the 3 deck version. Looks like everything is fitting nicely.
