USCGC Hamilton WIP Update #2 . Progress report for my ongoing 1:65 Hamilton class US Coast Guard cutter project. . Since my last WIP post, I have reworked the telescoping portion of the hangar and have added the funnels, turbine intakes (the curved sections immediately in front of the funnels), and the rear mast. I was hoping to have this update done sooner, but the mast has been the bane of my existence for the last two weeks. Duplicating its sloping angle and including all of the supporting trusses and platforms has proven to be a difficult task at this scale, but I think I have finally arrived at a result that I am content with. To give you some idea about the magnitude of this project, the length of the what is shown here (i.e. the flight deck, funnels, and turbine intakes) is 74 studs. That represents about 126 feet at the 1:65 scale, which is almost exactly one third of the overall length of the ship. So far, I've used around 3,000 parts, so it's looking like I may have underestimated the final part count somewhat. I think I've crossed the point of no return on this project now -- it's starting to really take shape, so I am going to be motivated to finish it. I'm not exactly sure what I am going to work on next, but I am leaning toward building down from the flight deck to main deck, and then building the main deck out to the stern. Since there has been at least one request for a close-up of the rails, I created the following image as well:
