    This Catalina I built just after the Arizona. Had to "skin" it after building it.
    I downloaded it from Kancho

    These are the wooden ships I built which took years each. I hate rigging, little string, small space, big hands.

    Is that the Swift I see? I was building that one, but did not pay attention when glueing the frames.... Hull looks good, but if you look closely, you can see the wild twist to it! Oh no, not another learning experience!

    Nice looking builds, Padre! Wooden ship models are one of my true loves.

    Just finished the free Minesweeper from Digital Navy.
    Next is the P-61 Black Widow from Gremir. That should take a loooonnnggg time. If I remember i will start a build thread on it since I don't think anyone has.

    Yes, home made. I hate canopies, made this one out of a book report cover as the model was small and the report cover flexible.

    Love the idea of the report cover for canopies. Looks great.

    Added a few more while taking a break from the Repulse and waiting for the U-Boat Type VIIc by Kooklik. This is the Yokosuka Judy from Inwald Card Models. A free model that is very detailed but directions are hard to follow. All flaps can be made movable and a bomb recess can be added. Used avery labels (full sheet) for canopies which made it easier.

    I am reducing my models by 25% to 50% so that I have room for them. Some that I have built previously I have given as gifts or presents to others so that I can make more room. I made this P-47d before but reduced by 25%. The canopy is a little smushed.
