Title: 1/96 USS Missouri BB-63

Current Status

I have tried to design this website such that it follows the sequence of progress I make on the model: that has turned out to be impossible so I thought it would be helpful to include a "Status Page" that lists each task and links to the corresponding webpage (if applicable). I suppose this is the actual "build log" for this project :)

This is a Work in Progress.
