Nice build!!
You have a lot of great detail and careful planning ... it looks excellent!
this last pic is great in helping show size too!


Thanks! Coming from you that means a lot! (I've seen your amazing stuff around the web)...

I'm thinking about re-visiting the Patrol Boat, making some modifications and posting a thread about it as well (for one thing, there's no way you can fit a 3" gun on a Patrol Craft... Need to downgrade it to a 25-40 mm autocannon....)

Ok, I do realize this is a rather old topic, but I've made some HUGE improvements to the Hawkwing... For one thing, thanks to someone posting a micro-scale twin 5" turret, I finally figured out how to do proper gun turrets for this ship. I also added missile and torpedo launchers as well as an additional watch station in CIC...

Also, I wasn't quite happy with the way the Federal Navy uniforms looked, and eventually I figured that using the blue jacketed Pirate torso (which I'd already been using) with white pants and the series 4 sailor caps was the perfect combo for the enlisted/junior NCO sailors, and the chiefs and officers were good as-is.

Not much changed in the Bridge, but I did add Nimitz, Cmdr Harrington's Sphynxian Treecat (actually, its more like she's his human, but still, they share a psychic bond), and this photo is much clearer than the last one.

..and here is the re-vamped CIC with an additional watch station (Tactical Action Officer's/Missile control console), and the addition of one Lt. Cmdr. William Turner as the Executive Officer... As you no doubt can see by the fact that half the crew is female, and there are at least two aliens, the Federal Republic of America takes its "equal opportunity" laws seriously.

Hope you guys like the improvements.

EDIT: Here's a pic of the Hawkwing performing convoy-escort duty with the FNS Inferno (Inferno-class PT boat) escorting the Motor Vessel (MV) Merry Maid through some dangerous waters.
