    Recently, I saw one of the online shops advertising a "digitally redrawn" version of JSC's kit #11, the USS Helena, (the only one of the 10 ship extended Brooklyn class of cruisers to be sunk during World War II).

    Has anyone seen this updated version yet?

    I have the original version, but if the update is of as good a quality as some of JSC's more recent offerings, like the SS United States, then I really want to get this version too.

    p.s. Pop quiz, what was the other Brooklyn class cruiser sunk by hostile forces, and where?

    (In defference to our British members, I won't include several lines from Pink Floyd's "Get your filthy hands off my desert", as I'd intended.)

    Now back to our regulaly sheduled anxiety attack.

    Defference appreciated. In return, I won't mention the fact that the price of AIM 9L Sidewinders from our Colonial Cousins went up by 200% just as our Harrier pilots REALLY needed them.
