Hi John.....great build  O0 ....you call them "Phalex" ....in OZ they are termed as CIWS...[close in weapons system....or phalax] & from memory built by the Rayathon Corporation

Slightly off topic  ;D....many years ago......one of our HMAS DDG's returned to home base @ GID in Sydney after Taskforce 83 with the USS....complete with what appeared as a new twin CIWS installation atwart ship in a similar position to the USS DDG's

Upon inspection  %% ....the CIWS were just a mock up  {-)....205 litre drums with lengths of 1/2" NB water pipe as barrels ...... O0 ;D :embarrassed: >>:-(

I could not explain what I found to my   :police:........Derek

Superb John  :-))well done

hi all thanks for the compliments, just to answer the question on how i made the yellow and black warning circles - their made from the thinnest plastic card i could get which is .025mm. draw a circle on and divided it into equal segments, painted alternate segment black and yellow and then when dried i cut them out with a circle cutter

aye

That was a beautiful build John. It shows that just because a model is grey, it isn't flat. The detail on that superstructure is astounding.

Well worth a read especially as I found the review of the P94 unit by Action. Looks like a good value piece of hardware.

Can you use it with four shaft ships by twinning up port and starboard motors?
