I'd love to know how he pulled that one off because there was a swimming test even in those days.

Greetings Dane;

I am still here ......... I have been kind of disappointed in people
lately, I haven't had much to say ..........

How have you been..... ?

.....I did pick up the Trumpeter 1/200 USS Arizona, at a realitive good price,
$130.oo dollars. I also picked up the White Ensign detail set. Kind of
high prized at $70.oo. It is nice....... very pretty ..... but over priced....
I got the Trumpeter update for $12.oo .........., a real wood deck for 100.oo,
this surprised me. I was expecting it to be higher priced.


..... There is a store here in Atlanta that splices in making wood Madel decks. There name is
Stevens International..... URL.... www.ststevenshobb.com

The deck is very well done. All hole are cut out, and it just fits over the
deck. I am in-pressed by the nice fit. Included is the 5in/25 gun deck, and
real wood for the various boats. As burned into the wood deck is the wood planks. Very nice, indeed.

Later,

Mike
