Model Shipwrights is proud to present Russell Eames''s SS Jeremiah O''Brien. Russell used Trumpeter''s 1/350th scale version of this famous Liberty Ship and put together a fine static display.

Very nice build!

I like the "clean" look of this ship....they don't always have
to be rust buckets...to be appreciated!

Haven't seen this before. Looks like it has just slipped out of the builder's yard. Great build Russell. regards Michael

Thank you guys! :-) Went with the museum style (as per most of my builds) as it suits my way of displaying the finished builds on chocks... Hence the nice 'clean' look. Have been a bit tied up with real life, hence the delay on getting the pics out to MSW, but here they are at last-glad you guys enjoyed seeing them! Russ :-)
