Thanks Jan.

I have decided to put most of the detail on the first level of the superstruature before I glue it on the hull as it is a great fit even with the wooden deck on there.

But first up it is the waterways and barriers. Railings come last as always with me.. except for the sticky-uppy things of course...

Warren,

That is a lot of deck pieces to place, very nice work. I bet you are ready to move to a new task.

Thanks Mark.

I just realised it is not totally finished as there is structure to put on the rear of the ship but I am waiting until I attach the first and second levels of the superstructure before I do that.

Cheers

Hi Warren!

she's looking really good now. I always wondered what those lockers behind the break waters were for-now I see: paravanes!

I can't help but wonder though, if the anchor chain is under-scale???

The Rodney is sidelined for a while while I wait for an item to arrive so I thought I would start another model while I wait.. I ended up starting three and this is the bench at the moment..



Anyone car to take a guess at the identities of the three?

after careful examination of the photo, I can honestly say that I believe them to be airplanes!

That's the most accurate answer so far...

The three are Valom Albermarle, Italeri SM.82 (no fuselage so probably impossible to guess) and Roden Turbo Porter. All waiting for masks now and then I can paint.

Well, my guess would have been, from left to right, a U.S. B-26 Martin Marauder, a British "Mosquito" (based on the landing gear), and a German "Storch" (?).

I guess I need to go back to aircraft identification school!
