To reject The MANIFESTO is a direct challenge to it.  Post your's, sir, else you be seen as a pretender to insanity!!!

Manifesto, Schmanifesto!

I've had so many of them in the last few days I could paper my walls with 'em, and probably will!  ;D

Roll on midnight and we'll all be done with it for a year or so, only 12 mins to go!
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards
Kit

It looks a lot like a couple of Zumwalts I have on my bench...is that going to be CGX?

Yeap having a go at a Zumwalt as fite the Project Cancelled theme perfectly as a Stealth warship cancelled after only 2-3 units.

Pretty simple to shape due to flat surfaces, and minimal clutter, plus the likes of the hangers and boat bay can be left opened up.

Finally finished both the SCS & DDX, although still need to complete the Airgroup.







Flash is a bit bright but only camera with batteries






The flash washes out some the detailing so will try and get better pics in daylight and with the better camera

Well i have started work on a new SCS hull, i had part done a solid one following discussions with Martin H about moulding but it just didn't feel right and was getting no-where.

So out with the plastic card and strip styene on Saturday and i have knocked together another hull with a hollow hanger. The basic hull shape is completed as is the flight deck shape, and there only the back wal of the hanger to sort out and the recess for the deck lift. Once thats sorted i can create the Island Superstructure.

Now comes the problem, despite being 1/700 its still a sizeable ship and won't be cheap to mould in rubber and then cast in resin, im not sure there is enough interest to invest in getting the rubber and resin as the final cost with shipment to the customers in the US may deter those who have expressed an interest  :banghead: Any ideas ?

Without trying to come off crass, would it help if a few of us could give you a dollar/pound figure that we'd consider reasonable?  Maybe via PM?

And again, stellar workmanship.  Just awesome.  :)
