  3. Great looking Tin can..

  4. Hello Anthony,
    This represents the workhorse of the US.Navy very well.
    The clean lines show power and speed. I still prefer this to the new LCS Zumwalt. Whats up next?

  5. This is a fantastic build! As are all the others by the way, just too many to comment on all individually!
    The camo on this is really eye catching, and very well executed.

  6. Excellent build, love the camo.

  7. Just a very beautiful ship. You did a magnificent job! Mine came out ok, but not with the details of your model.
