Norman,

She is looking great. nice to see that the kit armament are coming together.

Master Model does some exquisite brass barrels, both for the 25mm and the 12.7

Thanks gent's, sorry for not posting, a vehicle engine rebuild has come my way and haven't had time at the bench. I'll have something soon.

The Chikuma is still coming along, life has got in the way a little bit so haven't been able to post updates. Hopefully after the new year I can get to a more normal life. I'll try to get some pics up soon of the progress.

Hi Norman,

It is good to hear that your Chikuma is still coming along! I see that your previous image postings have been taken down by Photobucket - when you get to posting new pics be sure to use another host so we can all see the pictures!
