Aurora 1/228 USS Skipjack Atomic Submarine (Done)

The 40 year old decals fell apart, but, I was able to "save" the ID plate decal.  It went on without a hitch, but, then cracked and fell apart.  I'm calling this one done.  I will eventually print decals.

Revell/Renwal 1/32 Teracruzer with Mace Missile (reissue) WIP Part 4

In part 3 I was in the homestretch.  That was 2 years ago!  Now I really am on final approach.

The only remaining assembly is the cab and then decals.  I painted my Mace in an operational scheme and most of the kit decals won't work.  When I print my own decals this project will finally be done.  This kit was a bear with all the sanding, but I like the way it turned out.  I'm very happy Revell reissued this interesting, but, important part of America's early missile program.
