Progress on the Alabama and Kearsarge

 A little more progress on the CSS Alabama and the USS Kearsarge - both models have been sealed and the basic rigging has been added.  Since these models are destined for the tabletop, I tend to prefer a light rigging scheme as that's easier to repair fro the inevitable gaming mishaps.  I also need to add the flags but that's a relatively simple exercise.


 A close up of the Alabama.  I like the level of detail that a 1/600 ship model can provide.




Ans a cose up of the Kearsarge.  Both models are from Thoroughbred Figures and are of exceptional quality.  They do take a little skill to assemble and paint but I think the end results are well worth the effort.

I'm not sure what's next on the painting / modeling agenda, but I know I've got several nagging items to finish up on some projects before starting a new one.

Exceptional quality models - and looks like you're doing an exceptional job on them too - can't wait to see them all based up and finished!

There are countless abdominal exercise that you can do that are much more effective and far less strenuous than the sit-up!The last most common myth about abdominal development is that you can get really good abs with a really poor diet.
