GREAT GREAT JOB!!!! however the davits are not hollowed...I am building the USS THE SULLIVANS in 1/350 from Trumpeter and I am doing a good ref research. The Greek navy had several vessels of the type. One is a museam at Falliron bay. The "VELOS"(is the greek word for ARROW) D16.The best thing of all is the trully amazing riple effect you have achieved!!!! How on earth you did it???

Hi Daniel. I will be eventually starting my Fletcher with the same Big Ed PE set. The Eduard forecastle railings are not curved to match the sheerline of the ship. How did you resolve this issue? Is the sheer gentle enough so that you could force the railings into position without bending or kinking them? This was a very foolish error on Eduard's part not to make this railing section curved.
