Wonderful job chippy!

I made mine (unpainted) back at Christmas 1965!  After years of rather rough play the ship finally ended up at the attic.  Some years ago I took it down and noticed I was able to pull off the boat deck so it would be possible to paint the promenade deck.  I also noticed to my delight that I still had the unused decal sheet and three propellers left in the box so I decided to make a full restoration.

Hey Ratch that's a great job you've done on a very complex 'dazzel' scheme! 8-)
Did you use the JSC 1/400 scale card kit or the amazing Jim Bauman 1/600 Airfix build of the 'Maury' in this AMC/Trooper scheme for reference?
