The USS Pine Island is the ship my grandfather served on from August 7, 1947 to January 6, 1950. I built a Revell model kit of the ship as my mother's Christmas present this year.
Models are the reason I didn't hit the majority of my goals this year. I worked on them instead. When I made my goal list I wasn't even considering models. Its fitting that I spent the last few months of the year getting this one together.
This was more complicated to build than my last one, but the paint scheme was a little less complicated. Although, trying to build the greys up so they were interesting and not flat was a challenge.
As I said I build this as a Christmas present. However, I was tempted to keep it. I had a spot all picked out and everything!
However, I'll end up sticking a rotation of Star Wars models up there. But, I'll need to build them first!
