    I am going to have to pass off the Yankee II to Dave. Just don't have the time anymore for all the builds. Only molds I have time for is the 1/72 Charlie II and the 1/72 688. The 688 is the fist to be molded next week.

    Dave you get box with Foxtrot stuff in it? I should know better then to make boomers. Missiles doors are a pain. I will stick with SSGN's. Charlie II hull is almost all shaped. It is only 6" shorter then the Yankee.
    Got the box, have not opened it yet. Tonight, Tim.

    Started the scribe work on the Yankee. The surface coat of the epoxy and fiberglass powder is so hard I can barely scribe it with my scribe/jewelers file. Hopefully will have the Yankee hull scribe work done this week.
    Looking good, Tim!

    Well … all right, then! Hope the root of my sail-planes match, Tim.

    Found the perfect fit. Using a couple PE parts from a 1/144 Romeo kit. I am talking almost perfect.
