Si,

Nice progress, the fit around the hull is looking nice and flush.

Some small progress at the weekend,

Doors added to the maindeck level.



detail going on the interior, including the first of the two prominent deformed pipes.





The second pipe in place, not a perfect match for the photographs, but I think they work.





A few more bits and pieces and she will be ready for some paint.

Cheers

Si

Cheers

Thanks Mark,

Depending on how much time I get at the bench, could be next weekend. There are a few more bits to go in first, and a bit of a sand around the join.

Cheers

Si,

Nice work standing those ladders away from the wall. Sometimes that detail gets over looked when a modeler adds replacement ladders.

Thanks Mark,

I have found a sharp chisel blade, a little care, and a light sand, and it is not too troublesome, and gives the etched ladders more relief.

Cheers.

Nice work Si, great attention to detail on a "non standard" build. Get to use some artistic license.

Thanks Mark,

Won't be too long, The next job will be to set up how she sits in the base, better for the paint goes on, so I don't damage the finish.

Si,

No one should do that to one of His Majesty's destroyers... but your destructive building looks just right!

Thank you Tim,

They should not indeed, but we built them well, because she went to fight again and survived the war.

Pity she was scrapped and not preserved.

Good to have you aboard Dave.

This is the biggest bit of Scratchbuilding I have done so far, the biggest lessons I have learned are take it slowly, and it is not a disaster if you have to do a bit of it again.

Very small update from last weekend.

I found some old expanded polystyrene tile, started cutting to shape for the base.



Next, get stuck down, and find somethings to make the jetty and the groundwork out of.

Cheers

Si
