The ol' "box scale" Monogram USS Pine Island.
I have a soft spot for USN Floatplanes and their activity in WW2, so by proxy the support ships intrigue me to.
I picked this kit up a few years ago, spent 2 summers ago cleaning flash and mould defects and finally started applying some glue and filler in the past week.
This kit is a disaster of engineering I must say, BUT it provides a good outlet to sharpen my dormant skills before getting back to an LSP project.
It will be OOB (and this pains me greatly) but should be a fun painting challenge.
Pics to come, but I wanted to get a topic started.
