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.

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???

It looks like Salt weathering process, but I could be wrong.

Can you describe how you achieved the chipped effects on the side of the hull and beneath the waterline? Did you paint the chips or use some other technique like a sponge, chipping fluid, hairspray, etc.?

Amazing model Daniel. Those awards are well deserved!

I hate to nitpick, but I assume you're representing a dry-docked ship? The streaking runs vertical below the waterline, which I don't think would be correct.

But who am I to question the master!



Hello friend Samuel!! It makes me happy that it is of your pleasure....

Not!!! Not master of nothing!! Jejej I would like it but I lack a lot of work!!
Well I not lerm to represent water!!
So my models go all in entire hull in the open air ...i like too ...
some day I will throw myself to the water

Best regards Daniel

Thank you friend Mike!! Already I had forgotten the enterteining thing that was this project Fletcher. yes, the effect " tin of oil " is in the whole hull. I did it with a curved leaf of razor knife. Luck with your Destroyer

regards Daniel



Thank you Daniel. I am sure it was fun..a lot of work but fun indeed. One more question if you don't mind..do you remember

what was the size of the square of the tin of oil effect? TIA

Mike



Jejeje Thank you my friend. Really I do not remember the measure, calculate a relation on a royal photo and the identical numeral .... this is aprox 0,9 cm x 1,8 cm of high ..... but it is not the same measure in the whole hull!!! And on having scratched with the scalpel this measure it goes away to.....

Regards Daniel ......And remember that I want to see your advances!!!

Hi Daniel

Located Julians build I think.

Daniel what was your opinion on the Eduard PE set?

Which set was it the Big Ed set?

What other after market sets did you use?

Cheers

The oil canning and the hull weathering still knock me out. A brilliant build that I am still very jealous of



Jajja thank you Julian .... but my Fletcher Class does not even shade to his Fletcher!!

Regards Daniel




We both ran into the same problem with the Fletcher: If you use Eduards PE depth charge racks you end up with empty racks unless you scratch a lot of DC's. I didn't


And I chickend out of doing the oil canning, you didn't
That is why I consider your build better, along with the best hull weathering I have seen in a long time



Uuufff coming from the teacher Julian!! It is an honor for my!!!

I will have to uncover a "Tanat" to feast!!!!

I'm late to the party, but I'm glad all you photos are still up. Daniel, your Fletcher Class Destroyer is totally awesome. I like the wavy/ripple body effect on the bottom part is totally awesome. Was that applied to the full body? TIA
