As promised, comparison between the kit and replacement winch.
Next job, vent trunking.
I have numbered each one, on a side that doesn't show, to match the sub stages in the instructions.
everything test fitted in place.
Cable reels, replacements compared to the kit parts.
The upgrade set comes with replacement etched skylights, these are well thought out.
The basic box, with a mesh.
Sorry, different one, with the hatched fitted.
The plan is, once sprayed white, give grill a dark wash, and glaze with Krystal klear. Might even display one or two open.
Skylights and hatches test fitted in place.
The only very slight flaw / omission in the pontos set I have found to date, whilst rigging attachment points are supplied on the centrecastle gangways, none are supplied for the funnel casings, so some small sections of plastic strip have been shaped and fitted, fore funnel casing is the only section done so far.
