one of the rare occasions of an update...
So I've be dealing with the aft superstructure parts, those just forward of the PomPom stand. Quite confusing references and information. Assuming that Pontos got it right with the HMS Hood association's help, it's still contradicting the AotS in some details. And it's quite far away from the Trumpi (must be careful, auto correction always wants to make Trumpi into Trumpf...saw that on a different post of mine...) kit's part.
However, not much provided in my after marked, and some changes would require major surgery, so I decided to go with some errors in that part.
The basic structure, first PE doors added and archways opened up.
(Edit: no clue why some of the pics come out that small, must be a setting on my laptop when editing pictures. However, I decided to leave them as they are for now.)
Windows opened and some railing cut away from the upper part.
Some railing and surfacer added below, and a first try for a locker, but wrong size entirely, at least taking the Pontos as a reference, it should not be higher than the railings.
Those locker are better size - even if I know they are wrong...they are ammo lockers from Veteran, 37mm AA ammunition for Kriegsmarine vessels...but I think they look all right.
Some scratch work started on the higher railings.
But the endeavor to build half-railings on the lower platforms was abandoned after severals trials...
So I will go with this:
Painted and installed...
Then I decided it was about time to install some of the pre-build structure parts on the shelter deck, together with some more hatches. The additional - midships - ladder from the shelter deck down, that Trumpi built as a structural part, just got some kind of cover.
And yes, I saw that the support underneath one of lower platforms is completely off-angled, I realized it only when I was uploading the picture. It's straight meanwhile.
So much for today, as always, thank you all for following!!
