The U.S.S. Ozark (left) and the C.S.S. Selma - the latest additions to the collection
As a slight break from the previous six posts in which I described being at the final stages of the ship build and then went through various permutations of what needed to be done and when, I have last gotten off the mark with some completed models. In truth the previous six posts were probably not the most inspiring of reads BUT - definite progress has now been made and the fruits of this you can see above.

I rather enjoyed building these and am rather pleased with how they have turned out. For the C.S.S. Selma the supporting frames were commissioned from those wonderful people at Warbases, as was the superstructure for the U.S.S. Ozark.
The next nine models all have masts - luckily they are built - but the plan is to tackle the next four over the weekend.
Things are moving along at last!
