        • I don't think I'll stockk food. The XXIIIs were coastal baots with short mission times. So the need to pack them with food was not as pressing as with the long distance VIIcs or IXs.

            I should have known that. Well, maybe a loaf of bread, Wiener schnitzel and a jar of hot mustard.

            • Not that I'm lazy, but this stuff is taking forever. Starboard the wooden benches....allone the decals took over a week. Then scribing the floor plates, painting the aluminum liners, the green linoleum + clear coat. getting everything together and then the beds...the mattress are coverd in self-printed decals. I like it. Some aditional details like the cable harness from the control room to the battery room and that's it for now.

              Getting there.

                        Oh, I know what kit you started with. All these subassemblies are incredible, and I was just wondering if we'd get to see the "big picture" of the kit as you've detailed it so far.

ID:	161873 Made a little progress. Took care of the beds on the port side and decided to show the front two in folded up position to show what was possible and give everything a more real feel. The undersides of the beds took time. The chess board pattern is a combo of decals, color and washing. Tedious....

                              • And some more detail work....the support wires and the fence of the upper bed are installed. Thought that would be difficult, bit everything went on just fine....
