1/350 ID Flotilla T-2 Tanker
« on: May 12, 2015, 07:17:22 AM »
Felt it was time to enlarge the flotilla with a T-2A Tanker. Even at 1/350 scale, the model is 17 inches long. Drawings were secured from http://www.themodelshipwright.com/

Looks promising!
 I have a special love for boats as a fishing trawler was the fist solid model I ever made in the not so distant past!

Lots of glue ensures a good bond between parts.

My T2 has been sitting idle far too long. I have reworked the bow and I am making the mid ship bridge decks.
