This plan is seriously working. Much progress was made this week. So much so that the end of the project can be visualized. But enough of that, get to the models!
CSS McRae and USS Miami are done and join, the fleet!
|USS Miami quarter view. Fine model from Bay Area Yards.|
But, wait, there's more! USS Lackawanna and her sister are completed as well!

What's in progress?
So what's in progress? Basically what is left in the queue - USS Susquehanna, USS Kearsarge and USS Minnesota. Susquehanna is close to complete needing just a little touch up on the paint.
|Nice beam view of Susquehanna.|
|So much wire...|
|Seriously, that's a lot of wire. Several feet at least.|

|USS Minnesota with the early 1862 armament. (Plus the full gun deck under the spar deck.)|
|10" pivot forward with 8" guns on the spar deck. Guns are mostly from Bay Area Yards, but there are four Thoroughbred guns mixed in on deck.|
Get cracking on finishing this project up! Install the last of the guns, touch up the paint and get busy installing the rigging for Minnesota and Kearsarge!
