The 3" guns for the stbd side detail painted, one example.
The port side gunports will be closed so I am using a different approach, the pedestals and barrels are being kept separate so the barrels will fit exactly into their slots.
The stbd side guns fitted.
Port side pedestals fitted.
And the barrels, all nestling neatly in their slots.
Closed ports in place, these are kit parts, etched parts will be used for the open parts on the stbd side.
3" guns from above.
Port side 6" guns with their ports closed.
Stbd side open.
Open ports with the gangways and lower bridges in place. No extra detail work will be required in the gun position.
The view through the 3" ports, at least some of the detail will be visible.
An overview, with the gangways and lower bridges fitted, the gap on the forward port 6" casemate will be an easy fix.
Did some more today but the photos are still on the camera. Will try and add those posted tomorrow ore Tuesday.
