The first day of the year was a fine day for model making. :zen
I found a gray I liked. :yipee

First Day trap of the Cruise, with Egg-phins for perspective. :good

Green Dragon spotted forward, to make room for whatever else tries to come aboard.
HLJ had these little gems on sale last year, with the P/E & wood deck. I could not help myself. This will be my first use of self adhesive wood decking. I don't like it because I think it's way over scale thickness.
This seems a perfect project for it, since scale is NOT an issue.
Yeah, Fujimi gives you a mask to airbrush the flight deck markings on as well. :coolio

Thanks for looking in! :woohoo:

Note to Self: Apply the wood decking BEFORE you attach the p/e elevators. :smack

The P/E set comes with expansion joints that go between the wood deck sections. They aren't in place yet.
I dunno. What do you guys think? :idonno

Flight deck. Testor's metalizer sealer (Cuz' it dries fast) and a light wash of brown to bring out wood deck details.
I edged the evevalors in red sharpie marker.
Hint!: Red Sharpie does NOT go well with Metalizer Sealer!! :smack

Good Music, compressor running. Jackie & Tator hang out in the "Nut Department". I don't think they care about models, they mostly wait for a hand-out!

Great looking deck, I love it. I also love your cats! The striped one looks just like my Misty. Sweet!
My cats will come into my hobby room too. Sylvester and Misty both check out the bench to make sure everything is going together well, then they go curl up somewhere and stay with me to keep me company.
