Gunboat Philadelphia Bristling with Guns!

Bob Crane, the designer of the up and coming Gunboat Philadelphia by Model Shipways,
sent us a recent picture of the Gunboat Philadelphia "bristling with guns"! I'm sure you will agree, this is going to be one fantastic model kit and a great addition to the Model Shipways line of model ship kits!

Great work Bob, we're all anxiously awaiting the final product!

    I also am waiting for Shipways model of the gunboat Philadelphia. I don't know if you know it or not, but Shipways model is on the last page of Model Expo's current catalog. It's listed as "ready in 2012" but in a phone call to Shipways, a receptionist(?) said it's not yet available and she has no further information. I live in Plattsburgh NY and sail near Valcour Island, where the Philadelphia sank in 1776 and was raised in 1934.
