    Made it down to Gary's today and with his and John's help, got the cannon in and mounted. Rotate is good to go! Little bit of wiring and gas work, some ballast, and maybe depression servo. Battle time is getting close!

    Don't forget you now have a bag full of outfitting items to put on your ship. As an allied captain, I look forward to shooting off the detail parts I give away. Yesterday was great, we got a lot done.

    Got everything I need except depth charge racks. Could use some more mines. I used zip ties to make mine rails.

    It's actually easier to get innovative with creating ship detail out of other items we find, then you would think. The zip ties is a good idea. When we get together to sail in a couple weeks, I will bring all the outfitting items. I'm sure you'll come across something else that's missing/needed.

    Gary is like drug dealer he gets you hooked on the detail items and he will shoot the detail off so he start charging for more so be careful. Remember kids crack is whack.

    If only there was some profit in this. Get TAP Plastics to start giving me the molding resin and rubber and I wouldn't even have to charge for the materials.

    1/72 Queens Own. From what I've seen they don't tend to have many guns but the ones the have often rotate.

    Sid don't forget they are swastika wearing Z Boats so I hope no one will cry. Yes Tugboat we have rotation in most of our boats. The smaller two gun starter boats will have fixed but most will upgrade to rotation.

    I was asking because I didn't know that Brandon had built a 1/72 ship. Very cool.
