Hi mate, I have bought the same kit but my project will be the ARA Almirante Domecq Garcia (ex uss braine) The problem is that i need the 1950s armament upgrade. I have all update parts, except the tripod mast, so i think I will scratch building some of them. What config you will use?? Are you going to build 1950s config? with tripod mast ? Sorry for my english not my native language. Greetings from Argentina.

Greetings Juan. This will be my very first ship model. My uncle served on her during 1945 - 1946, so that is the one I will be trying to model. I'm still doing research on the ship to find what I need to make an accurate USS Gatling.

My dad was cook on the USS Waller during the Korean War. This is about as close as I can get. The Waller was a Fletcher class ship converted to an Escort Destroyer DD 466. With some PE it should look better. One of the reviewers also did it as the Waller. I'd really like the new Revell kit, but it has the early round bridge. Maybe they'll issue the next step square bridge soon, but this will do until then. Its an oldie!!

Let me guesse, you picked that color carpet in order to take pics of your models. Nice job on the boat. is the Zero by Hasagawa? Gary

That carpet was picked out by my fiance for the basement to cover up the soda-shop flooring. The model is a Tamiya, a6m3 model 22.

Actually, the model was chosen to match the carpet. And the desk. And the Zero. And.....

Hey Ingmar, the result is very nice indeed. I like the water color and the moderate waves. All comes together very convincing to me!
By the way, ship waves is not my main skill and I tried it in different ways. You'll find some tests etc. here.

Thx!
@Christian: I have to follow your build more closely! I like your Approach to dynamic "seascapes". After this distraction I'll have to focus my shipbuilding time on my Prinz Eugen. She has been waiting untouched on the bench for over half an year.

As replied this is a very nice result and I really like to see another mate building ship models, next to some other who start building a ship. That makes me feel not alone :)

A wonderful build and I really like the way you've captured the ship's motion :)
