Almost done. I got the Krystal Klear in for the windows. I ruined the decal that goes on the front of the conning tower so I am trying to get a replacement set from Moebius. I am redoing the observation deck windows (I have a second set of the Paragrafix FE) and I need to figure out how to best touch up the paint over the decal on the rear of the conning tower where the decals didn't meet. But close. Very close.

Share when you can, Dave!

And it's finally a (frustrated) wrap.

So the floodlight that was shooting down from the lower left side of the conning tower doesn't work and there was no way to repair it. I'm kind of bummed because it was a cool little detail, but oh well...

Apologies for the pictures, I only have my iPhone as a camera and no light box. It's just not a priority at the moment.

This turned out great! Sorry to hear about the faulty bits that's always frustrating.

It looks great!
  I've had aa couple similar builds where the frustration mounts and all you wanna do is get it over with. Give it a bit of time. Once you get past the frustration of it all you'll be able to see the good work and the cool looking model like the rest of us do.  ;)

Thanks, all. Here are a few more pics in the dark (again, apologies for the craptastic quality).
