Your Virginia kit is fantastic! Thanks for your efforts to bring this boat kit out. I build 1-2 boats a year, but being semi-retired I have the time to work on them.
You are correct about the Type II, if you think the pictures are scary, you should see it from my workbench. This boat is going to take alot of effort and will stretch my building skills to the limit. One reason I got it.
Not only do the conning tower halves not quite fit, the hull is a mess also. I have made several 'suggestions' to the maker of this in hopes that he will be able to produce a more usable hull. More will follow, but right now, I have a Virginia class, (SSN-777, North Carolina) to work on!
The complete lack of evidence is the surest sign that the conspiracy is working.
