    This is Orange Hobby's 1/350 scale resin kit of the USS Robert E. Peary, modified to reflect the USS Kirk (FF-1087) during the time I served on her 1979-81.

  2. Liberty Ship SS Stephen Hopkins Updated

    This build is based on BlueJacket's 1/192 solid hull Liberty Ship kit. The detailing is a combination of scratch-building, adding to kit parts, and after-market items, particularly for the cargo rigging.

  3. Hooper Island Draketail "Martha" Updated

    This kit is produced by the modeler's guild at the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, MD and is available in their gift shop or online store. The Martha is one of CBMM's in-water working display boats. The design from the 1930's was very fast getting out to the oyster and crab beds but the complex stern was more than even skilled boat builders wanted to deal with. Well designed kit.

  6. USS Samuel B. Roberts (DE 413) Updated

    I completed this build a while back and had thought it was posted - guess not. It is a 1/16" scale kit from Bluejacket, of one of the handful of DE's and DD's that turned back a powerful Japanese fleet during the Battle of Leyte Gulf.
    Build is 99% out of the box, only added details are on the 40mm mounts, some nav lights and the floater nets. Great kit to break into solid hull kits.

  8. Willie L. Bennett Updated

    I finally completed my build of Model Shipway's Chesapeake Bay Skipjack Willie L. Bennett . I had completed 95% of it years ago but could not figure out how to make the sails. My wife finally agreed to give it a try if I bought her a new sewing machine so my $80 kit ended up costing me $480!
     
    This is a great kit with super plans, instructions and materials. You build the kit just like the real thing - including all of the (now invisible) interior framing. A true POF kit. This build is 99.9% out of the box, the only thing I added was the ice sheathing along the waterline near the bow.
