Hi,

My first summer project has just arrived at my workbench: HDMS Absalon 1/700 from NNT.

Ready to apply decals after some modifications in order to improve the original model:

Hi,

A couple of photos with the decals already in place as well as other details.

I used a 0,3mm string from my grand piano to represent the 4x antennas but I didn't like the result.
Instead, I used a 0,12mm harpsichord string.

What do you think about this?


Thanks.
Regards,
