Welcome back, Marcos!

Your project is a wonderful interpretation of the old girl in peacetime livery.

My version will is in dull wartime gray with lots of weathering, so together we'll show off her different moods!

Marcos
You have inspired me to get to work on my Oregon. Your Oregon is incredible. I'm impressed with the attention to detail you have put into your model. I would never have thought to correct the turret proportions like you did. You have a sharp eye my friend!

Hello Marcos, A beautiful job. It is nice to see someone take an old kit and improve it so incredibly well. It goes to show, "you can make a silk purse out of a sow's ear." Congratulations. Al

Hello All;
I started the major surgery on my build today and it is going very well because of this great online bulid. the plastic is very easey to work. I think I am going to have more problems with the fitting of the decks.

Beautiful work panzerserra. What paint did you use for the decks and super structure? I have done most of the major surgery to the mid section and found that the decks went in surprisingly well with very few voids. Just ordered the Toms Photoetch for her.
