This model took about two months to complete. The model is also R/C with a basic Futaba Kit and a Tazer ESC unit added for variable speed control. The photo etch was for an American ship which is why three bar railing is prevalent on the model. Spray painted bridal veil was used for vents. Styrene was used for braces, ammo boxes and the rear crane. The rigging is smoke colored nylon thread.
