Tim Barrett of Pennsylvania had not built a ship model since 1972. However, he decided to get back into the swing of things by building the SS John W. Brown from the Trumpeter 1:350 scale kit and brought it to Chattanooga, Tennessee for the
2019 US IPMS National Convention. It is built entirely out of the box and Tim decided to paint only the lower hull. Tim decided to use this build as a test, in order to develop his building skills, as well as to try new tools and glues. He has already
kicked off a new build.
