Here is my current project, the American oil tanker LOUISIANA of 1937. She did not last long, being torpedoed in the war, but her sister ships, RHODE ISLAND & FLORIDA, were still around in the 1960s.

Here is an update. I am now assembling the 'midship structure. Soon be finished now. Because it is only made from bits & pieces, the total cost of materials for the model itself is about £1 and that was for the brass tube & rod for masts, deck machinery and funnel. The main expense is the clear acrylic for the display case which is about £2 per square foot and the metal fittings for the carrying case.
