Retirement Eibwarrior: Yes, I am happily retired. Most importantly, my wife is understanding although she sometimes wants me to entertain her (take her places). Today, my college aged daughter wanted help on her paper, but I was able to have my wife help her instead of me because I was in the final stages of a model ship. From what I read above, we can look forward to a Texas and an Oklahoma in the future from you. Great! They would be somewhat complicated with their casemates, etc. I have the Wiswesser drawings of the Italia (sister of Vittorio Veneto) but it looks too hard for now. I'll just follow the progress on your other model.
