Very nice work, Mark!

Superstructure looks splendid, and quite a lot of small stuff and secondary weapons under production, that will be impressive once installed!

Cheers

Mark,

She's looking sweet with those wood decks. I see you have even begun adding photoetch - a brave move this early in the construction process! Best of luck, I'm watching this one with interest!

Tim



Thanks Tim. With the Kit's design I felt it best suited me to add P/E to certain areas as I went along.....Cheers mark

OK for the next update. Have completed her 28 25mm Triple Mounts. They each have 2 Plastic and 8 P/E Parts to each. One hell of a laborious Task.









Her Crane and Two Catapaults have also been completed. More to come soon.....Cheers mark

Mark,

That crane is magnificent! It appears to be different color from the catapults - is it stainless steel?

Great work man! I know what you mean - when I did my ISUZU flak cruiser I had a similar amount of single and triple flaks to do. But the result in the end will well justify the work now

Mark,

Looking sweet.

Looks like you have a few gaps to close up between decks and at the rear 155mm gun placement. Never had a build yet that didn't require a bit of gap closing.

Mark, you're a bit of stealth builder... quiet for a while, then all of a sudden: Bam! Out with a result that knocks us back with it's quality and quantity! Wow, wow and wow!

Mark,

It is good to see you've been cranking away again at this one. That is some beautiful work - and you are already making a start on the rigging! I'm continuing to enjoy this build.
