Hi all loads still to add to this part, slow going but I do feel I'm getting there









I will admit due to my abysmally poor modelling skills I've missed some pe out, as a bit of fun can you spot out the bits I've missed out.

I think PE is pretty much beyond my ability now so I can't see me buying any more.
Ken's the name modeling's the game.

Hi all here is the next update,
This sub assy is finished (well as much as I'm prepared to do) I like the unpainted brass standing out against the weathered painted parts, i just wish I had the skills to use all the PE (although to be honest I don't think you would notice the bits I've left out)

Hi all here is the crane from the kit.



And here it is after the PE











Does anyone know did these cranes have windows in the top (I mean I don't think they stood out on those railings to hoist the ships boats on board) I can't find photos of the cranes details, I would think it would be a fairly simple job to add them if they were there.

Looks great Ken, I add PE to all my kits as they add so much realism to the build. Your doing a great job with all them small fiddly bits.

How many has the carpet monster eaten?...

Thanks all, yes I agree the etch does make a huge difference.
It also adds to the length of time it takes to build the kit by two or three times so gives you a lot more value for your money, still not keen on the pesky stuff though.

Here is the next sub assy I'm going to attack





The eduard PE comes with PE Oerlikons but I like the kit ones



One of the reasons is the barrels on the kit parts are round also the PE parts are too thin.

I'm adding some of the PE to the kit Oerlikons to make them more realistic (I could add more PE to it but it's soooooooooooooooooòoo small I've left it off)( of course a lot of modellers would be able to add it but I don't have the skills)
