Yes, it looks a litle rough but... It's just to the point of being roughed in. I'm having to shim, trim and fit and so far, I'm pleased with how things are going.
These are a few of the 5" gun houses... notice the .010 white styrene shims? I didn't do that with my first build and it showed...
More later! Thanks for looking!

Remember, in this scale, after shimming and what not, plain old white glue is your friend as a seam filler.

OK, update time! Some more progress has been made...
The first pic is an experiment using the GMM PE pieces for the 20mm guns.... there are several dozen of these little beasties to build, 5 pieces each...
A little more progress made...
I should be finishing this one up this month because the guy I'm building it for has another for me to start when this is done... a 1/200 Trumpeter USS Arizona with Wooden deck, brass gunbarrel and PE upgrades... Stay tuned for more!

I finished painting the hull, today. I used Floquil engine black and boxcar red, Testors MM dark sea blue and medium grey.
Now, paint the screws bronze, touch up the deck, finish the superstructure, build something along the lines of 100+ anti-aircraft guns and finish this beast!
