nice touch with the spurling pipe Si



Thanks Russ,

It always looks odd to me when anchor cable just ends on deck, and to be fair it was a simple fix, don't get too many of those.

Cheers

Hi Si,

the very solid and professional progress one is used from the Heathwood's shipyard very nice work indeed. Absolutely concur with the anchor chains, they must not end somewhere on deck...

Cheers,
Jan

Hi Jan,

Thanks for looking in mate, it is a bit of a schoolboy error, particularly as the rest of the kit is so good.

Cheers

Today's progress.

The production line for the remaining quad 13.2mm.



ready for the etch.



and with the etch fitted, tricky to fold the seats and sights, but got there.



One of the things I like about this kit is that some jobs can be done on the sprue, the twin mounts.



and the anchor.



all the twin AA mounts ready for paint.



The etched breakwater around the fwd turret and its spots on the fret.



The supports on.



The breakwater being bent to shape.



More soon

Si
