Great work Andy. The interior detail is looking good. It is quiet small considering the amount of parts and detail.
Look forward to next update.

BigGrin Hi All

The interior parts are now done I took a few pictures of the various decks of the 'B' 18 inch turret magazine the white pieces are the charge bags for the shells which are on the fourth deck.

Interestingly enough it was either the forward 15 inch magazine next to the 18inch magazine in the model that exploded [either magazine exploding the other] as she sunk literally blowing the ship in two. Each 18 inch turret/barbet held 180 shells and the charges to fire them. Six cordite charges were used as a full charge for each gun. It was considered that only 60 shells per 18 inch gun would be needed for any battle she encountered.

After the magazine section was added the last armored section surrounding the 'A' magazine was put in place completing the interior.

The stern area has been started by placing the deck with its rails along with the well for lifting the ships observation aircraft and boats that were stored below decks to prevent there destruction from the blast of the stern 18 inch guns.

More soon
