good evening everyone


its getting to the stage now where everything i do is being remade (hopefully better



on the lower part of the mast there is a coller  and 4 holes need to be drilled into it, and  pintles inserted  through which a wire hoop is fitted, this has hooks hanging from it an supports the cope coils from the pin rails  (Just below the awning)


this is the kit way


i can do better i said



the searchlight platform fitted



the radar according to the kit is hung below  main top in fact it is not and forms part of the planform

also other things are changing as i go along like extra holes on the top for lines to pass through




tonight she looks like this

I've said it before Kevin and I'll say it again.

You ship modellers do a really fantastic job. I wish I had a tenth of the skill.
