Since the missile portion seems likely to make the model top-heavy, I'm extending the pegs on the plastic base, and adding some tabs to screw it down onto the wooden base, so any jiggling the switch is less likely to capsize the boat.






Decided to do some touch up painting, the Mission Models paint is really odd. It has a mottled look after handling. Maybe I should have let it dry longer? Well, after the touchup coats I followed up with 2 coats matt clear...






Finally, completed the electrical circuits!


Testing different configs of smoke and glues. Looks like plain Elmer's white glue is the best.

Keeping in mind this boat hasn't completed Sea Trails yet:




Notice the different colors on the masts.

Yeah, that's a Virginia class, isn't it? They seem to have gone away from the leopard spot scheme.

I just learned there is such a thing as a light box, that's how to do it. Got one on order.

I'll add a few closeups.
