    Try sheeting four Nagatos, a Kongo, a Sydlitz, a Radetsky and a Liberte all in one morning.

    Us MN all live within 30min of each other. There’s lots of group building. For sheeting I started about 8am prepping sheets. Zach started about 9am getting weldwood on one side of the ships. Andy Mike and Matt came over too. Zach got sheets on two predreads. I got sheets on the rest. The others sanded and painted. We were done with all the ships by 1:30 or so. Easy work.
