One of the things I really enjoy about the hobby is that it's so varied, just when it seems like you've done a ton of something then something completely different will come along and you'll be doing that for a while

 

This is so true, and so well stated. It can be a challenge, I keep getting yanked in different directions by all the projects I want to do, but that's a good challenge to have. 

 

This is a lovely build that will look great displayed wherever you choose. Great job and thanks for sharing.

Congratulations on a job well done.  I would consider this kit a difficult one for first build (especially with the bow planking) but you have done a great job.  Are you planning on using the display nameplate, pedestals and base?

Are you planning on using the display nameplate, pedestals and base?

I've purchased an acrylic display case and I'm hoping to fit the nameplate on that but need to see how it all fits before I know for sure. For some reason I just can't bring myself to use the included pedestals, it just looks too dangerous and I'm not crazy about screws in the keel so I'm considering just painting the work pedestal and trying to make it look nicer. Once I get the case and finalize the display I'll post another picture.

Final Presentation:

 

This is a story I'm sure many of you are familiar with. Ship needs case, now case needs table, now table needs space so rearrange furniture. Whew! Overall though I'm really happy with the way the case and table turned out. The picture is missing the front acrylic panel to cut down on reflections therefore the top curves a bit where it's not supported.

 

Thanks again for all the wonderful support, help and information.
