    So I just finished reading "A Captain's Duty", and by god is it good. I highly recommend it for military/maritime enthusiasts. With the movie coming out in a few days, I felt it proper to do a model of the heroic ship herself: the Maersk Alabama. The model will be in 1:500 scale.

    Well once again, I've disappointed myself. Why I'm going to upload this is beyond my understanding.

    I really don't know what you're talking about. DISAPPOINTED YOURSELF? WHY? IMHO, it's a pretty nice model, one more to add to your extensive list of great achievements.
    It's hard to grasp the lines of a ship, and you did it without any problems, overwhelming the limitations that are imposed by paper.
    SO, WHAT THE (please complete this space with ONLY ONE word) ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? It's cool, upload it and do like the music: don't worry, be happy! I know I am :cool:
