Hoosier, Dave Mezera, made the trek from Indiana to Chattanooga to enter his magnificent build of HMS Belfast from the Trumpeter 1:350 scale kit in the 2019
IPMS US national convention. On his entry form Dave noted that his modifications included; used the
Flyhawk super detail set, used invisible thread for the rigging,
figures by Fujimi, used Vallejo paints and soft pastel chalk for the weathering. He didn't mention it but he also had to waterline the hull for the fabulous seastate base.
Winner
