Thanks guys for your great comments. Very much appreciated.

I have been at it for a few hours and got this far. I have the tops of the funnels to do then onto the weaponry or the life boats which have many PE parts.

Here are the pics.

Thank you all for the nice comments.

I have done the tops for the funnels and now started the weapons. First had problems with the PE. I shaved off the plastic to make the discs and got the PE part. Wrapped it around and it was short. So i attempted to file them down but failed. So Got some 3mm dowel and made 1mm discs to do them. I am pleased with the result of these considering the size. Glued fingers and parts and tooth pick to everything in the process.

Cheers Alan, much appreciated.
I have now done the weathering and fitted them. I will do the prop shafts and props today the onto the many guns around the ship so it will be a slow process.
