One of the very best builds of a shark fin Fort I have seen- loved the choice of colors and the tribute to the crew. Looks like you dealt with the dihedral issues of the Academy kit very well! Beautiful model! 👍

Thanks for the nice words Mike 😊.  Yes i had to adress the dihedral issue by inserting some plastic card to get it better.
