Brass antenna housing replacements, with antennas extended. I'm posing 2 of the missile tubes open, so Georgia needs these instruments extended.


Looking very nice Sir! I have the USS Florida kit, which looks to be pretty close to the same exact kit. Certainly suffers from the same issues. Mine is sitting in the box on the shelf of doom with a ton of putty on that seam! :bangs head

Can you explain how you did those antennas?

Thanks
Mike

The after GPS antennas are tube brass, sized to slide inside one another. Drilled the vertical stabilizers,Attached with C/A gel glue. This model is sooo big for me, I kept breaking the OE plastic ones off! :bangs head :facepalm
If I do another 1/350 Dragon submarine kit, SHE WILL BE A WATERLINE MODEL!!! :bat

Yes, friends, that is an Airwaves (?) 1/72 Vought Super Crusader vac-form kit lurking behind USS Georgia! Very astute! Her day is coming.

Got to tell you Chris . Anything like that around me never survives the build .

Aluminum and brass with occasional steel is the only way I can get there . :S

Cheers, Christian

Ps. Not sure how the Navy comes up with it's classes but if you went with Ohio anything, you would have to dredge lake Erie to get anywhere since average depth is only around 30 FT
