Thanks to a busy Hobby Day weekend, I was able to finalize the construction and finish on the Trumpeter 1/700 scale USS Sacramento AOE-1. This isn't as well done as I'd hoped to make it, it just kept fighting me. I was constantly breaking off parts along the hull! I'm happy with the model as it is now. It sits well on my shelf of completed models:

This model even came with a 1/700 scale forklift along with the two helicopters:

That's all for now. I hope to get a few more ships launched this month, but it might not happen until another month or two. 

 

Thank you for looking in, comments are welcome.

Yes, those tankers have a lot of breakable bits on them. I always wondered if the real thing broke as many parts off as I did on my model. Nice job.

Thank you Eugene!  That would be interesting to find out. This ship is certainly tough to handle for transport to shows and such.
