The Task Force: Carrier Nicknamed the BAJA (Grandsons name for me)
Destroyer(Fletcher Class) USS ELI
Cruiser(Baltimore Class) USS Ben
Ships built from Pictures found online so much detail was lost. Lessons learned from this project, 1) Don’t use masking tape when painting), 2) Make sure you have enough clamps when gluing the hull together. 3) Paint as much as you can before putting together.
I had fun doing these ships and I think I have found a site to get plans from now which could make it much more interesting. The boys don’t care when something does not look right, they just have fun playing with them.
I’m still learning and have a long way to go. Started working with wood a year ago and a far different animal than programming airline reservation systems.
