I've been playing with some photo editing software. Not very good at it yet but you need to start somewhere.

Ed:
That top photo is my favorite thus far. The darn thing looks very real and would be awesome in a 18x24 format ( color )

Here is a modified version of the 1st one. Which do you like better?



BTW, my original files are 22 x 16. I'm thinking if printed to 22 x 18, it would leave a 1" white border.

The boat is just beautiful. You certainly did a great job on the details and the painting. Did the Mark 13 torpedoes and racks come with the kit or did you get them elsewhere? Since I was a Higgins crewman, I wish someone made a comparable Higgins kit.

Thanks CJ.
The kit included these racks and torpedoes. I modified the racks to better match the 495. A Higgins boat would be great. I would jump on that!
This kit builds a late war boat. I made a number of changes and made additional items to match the 495 but in general it is a great kit.

Ed, Those photos are very very good quality. Nice work. Can you tell me how I can post a photo on here? I've been trying, but no luck. Can you give me the exact format?

Thanks Greg.
To post you need to have the photos on a site that hosts photos. I use villagephotos.com . There are many. Some free, some not.

Then all you do is type [imagx] and put your photo link to the host site here and type [/imagx] Spell image correctly. I used an x so it wouldn't try to link to a photo.

Here is how I insereted one of the photos, above. Again, with "image" spelled correctly:

[imagx]http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2002-11/65524/AKRAB-540436310-DSCF0008y7b.jpg[/imagx]

Hope this helps.
Ed
