USS Jimmy Carter

It's been a while since I've posted anything- I tend to have a one track mind, and right now and for the past year+ it's been on trading cards. But I want to post on here, it's just...finding the time and mental motivation is not always easy.
This model I'm going to show today is my only completed submarine model, and my only ship model completed yet- although one of my favorite subjects to look at, the actual building of them is beyond my current skill set.

This kit ended up being more of a lark than anything else- I was visiting one of my favorite hobby shops, it was on the counter for under $10, so I decided to take a chance. It worked out well.

Oh yes...it floats!

The most amazing thing of all...I actually won an award with this model! I've been entering models in contests since the early 2000s, and I've won a grand total of three awards. This was the second to win, although, to be honest, there were only three models entered in the class, so I was guaranteed an award. I'll take it!
