    Guys,
    I'm getting a Battlers Connection Andrea Doria. John, the guy who was going to build her before me. But when it came time to cut the hull, he just couldn't do it. So He was selling her with EVERY thing, for $350.00!! My dad dose not know about her yet!!! So when i do get her, I'm going to make a list of what all i have, cause as of now, i only in the reg and CO2 bottle! So My little LST is going to have a bigger sister, Either in May or June!! But my plan for the first two or three season is Leaving her as a surface runner. and After a Season or two, I'll cut the window out and turn her into a combat model!! At only 50inches long, she safely fit in my mom's back set, with me and my little LST!! But She's going to be a heavy little bugger at almost 25lbs!! I'll get photos up in a few days of her!! There were only three guys who know about me getting her! Scott Wippel, Mikey Deskin and My other friend from the OAF Chase Hargraves! I'm looking at do a double-Decker PVC Carrier, for both little LST and little Doria.. Which would be A three in one type thing! Carriers for in the car, work stand Lakeside and A stand at home!! Let me know what you guys thing ok! Here are the photos: http://s575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/NASAAN101/ let me know what you guys thing ok...

    Those are the best looking refits of all the Great War BB/BC's, even prettier than the Kongos.
