The George Washington was made using a lengthened Skipjack hull to accomodate the 16 Polaris missiles - here's the missile decking being test-fitted.....

I only have the plastic parts - so I downloaded the box art and other images from Micro-Mir's website.

That didn't stop me starting the model though.........and it is now ready for painting....
