Here's my CSS TALLAHASEE from Flagship Models. Resin mainly with some wood, plastic and scratch building. I replaced the kit masts and added some after market wooden eyes, steel prop shaft, propellers and a few more incidentals. Never built a resin ship before but this was probably the most fun I've had building a kit! I might have some in progress pics somewhere I'll add them if I can find them.

That looks very nice Tim - could you give us a sense of scale? Perhaps a pencil beside her?

Thanks Tim - there certainly is some fine detail on that model.

Thanks very much. It was, thinking about doing another Flagship kit. They take some work but are ALOT of fun and Rusty is really good to deal with. I screwed up the chain length and he was good enough to get another right to me.
