    Recently, I saw one of the online shops advertising a "digitally redrawn" version of JSC's kit #11, the USS Helena, (the only one of the 10 ship extended Brooklyn class of cruisers to be sunk during World War II).

    Has anyone seen this updated version yet?

    I have the original version, but if the update is of as good a quality as some of JSC's more recent offerings, like the SS United States, then I really want to get this version too.

    p.s. Pop quiz, what was the other Brooklyn class cruiser sunk by hostile forces, and where?

    How the USS Phoenix aka the General Belgrano during the Falkland Islands Conflict.

    Got it in one.

    (In defference to our British members, I won't include several lines from Pink Floyd's "Get your filthy hands off my desert", as I'd intended.)

    Now back to our regulaly sheduled anxiety attack.

    Defference appreciated. In return, I won't mention the fact that the price of AIM 9L Sidewinders from our Colonial Cousins went up by 200% just as our Harrier pilots REALLY needed them.
