Its gonna be really cool JIM, but please for the love of MOc-pages, don't do any Mega Blocks, this is too epic to be criticized, build it pure, sit back and enjoy your success as the LEGO Military ship King of the planet Earth!
What a monster ship! And that kid is adorable too. How do you manage to build without your munchkins getting into things and breaking them? That is a main reason why I build digitally these days, to avoid that very problem.
I tell you what, the anticipation on seeing this one done is overpowering. 23 1/2 feet long. Wow.. Are you keeping a brick count? j/k With my job, I do have the option to travel. If I make down to the base in Hawaii, I'll try to see if I can get a ball cap from the ship for you.
