USS Olympia was created by Gary
I've started a ship model of all things!! It's rather a nice kit and something completely different for me, you can follow the build progress here on our blog.

Yeah I've actually bought a few of them recently, I like modelling because I like to make things with my hands, so I'll build literally anything.
So far I've bought USS Gambier Bay 1/350 Aircraft Carrier plus all the addons like extra planes, wooden deck, PE etc, USS Arizona with full addons again, a Japanese Light cruiser (name slips my memory) again with all the extras and the USS Olympia. If this is anything to go by I'll be making more in the near future, don't panic I'm also building other stuff while the paint dries on this ;)

Hi Gary, looking good, lots of detail there!
Yeh, it must be the season for boats, maybe all the rain over the last week or so...
I dug out an old 1997 Trumpeter kit (Dragon copy before Trumpeter became legit...), its a crappy copy, but a small change, so i will persevere ...

ps. no photo etch on this one. :P
