I've taken the last few weeks off from both building and writing. The winter sucked all the enthusiasm for most things out of me. Now that the sun and warm weather are making a return, I'm feeling a bit more creative.

A first for me in the many years I've been building models: adding lights.

Something I cobbled together from a New York Times piece I'm working on relating to Civil War submarines.

Despite the cold, I'm getting a little work done on Nautilus.

151 years after sinking, the gunboat USS Westfield, converted from a Staten Island ferry, is being raised and taken to Texas A&M to be restored. Great, now I have to plan a trip to Texas...

I'm enjoying it so far. I've been test fitting the hull sections together and it looks like fit is going to be really good, hardly any seams, which is great considering all of the plating and rivet detail.  Now I'm playing with LEDs, and it's going to be fairly easy to light it.

My New York Times piece “Pook Turtles, Armorclads and the Civil War on the Rivers” deals with the ironclads on the western rivers.  Little know, these warships truly helped shorten the war by working in conjunction with the Army to retake and control the Mississippi river and her tributaries.

Yes.  I and several others talked with the guy who built it.  He really went all-out.  I was frankly surprised it didn't do better than it did in the contest (I believe he got a 3rd in his class).

Great inspiration for the 1/96th Constitution I plan on doing as an underway diorama someday.
