I have done some scratch building, but I have so little time, I think I would get a model done every three years if I did scratch building on a regular basis. As you can see, I already have a backlog of kits! Saving them largely for retirement.
For Jeff P.Sounds like you might be able to give our fave historian/static builder Tom Dougherty a run for his money!
Ain't sure how much longer this run is going to go anyhow. I've been at it pretty steady for 51 issues of the SCR (since #43), missing but a handful without some article or review. Having said that, I do have a few more Static columns (and would like to see if I can recruit Dave to showcase some of his above work). And I have one heck of a multi-parter article in mind: The Ultimate Summation of as many aspects as possible of Project Azorian, the recovery of a Golf II submarine by the CIA. Sure to mean close NSA monitoring for not only me, but Larue, Thor and maybe even you (unindicted co-conspirator!).

I served aboard USS Los Angeles (SSN-688) and might be interested in obtaining a nice replica like the ones in your pics. I am brand new to this forum, and totally impressed with the level of knowledge and detail that submarine modelers possess and demonstrate!
