USS Artic AOE-8 in 1/96 scale by Duane Curtis

This is a rebuild of an existing model.

The model as it appeared before I started the rebuild. Many items already removed before I rebuilt 2/3 of the structure aft of the bridge area.

Here you can see the aft details that are located under the helo deck and are hardly seen by most.

Hanger area for the helos, you can see the overhead rails that are used for the traveling crane system, this would be used to work of the helos while in the hanger.

Mid section of the structure showing part of it being rebuilt and part of it being reused when I could reuse parts to help make the rebuild faster.

Another part of the mid section towards the aft section.

Aft section of the structure showing the hanger areas and a fresh coat of paint.

Another aft section showing the location of the stacks and a couple of other structures.

Here you can see of the post that are used to high line supplies to and from ships. You can also see the warning marks that are used by the system's operator.
