Looks absolutely stunning, well done for the good work, it's nice to see a build of a MAS boat, you don't often see many Italian navy vessels. :-))

gra2..................I can see how the release mechanism pivots & releases the depth charge.....is there a limiting device to control the rate of release over time or distance of subsequent charges?

Is that 1/16"brass wire used as the pivot pins & control rod?

Looking forward to the next set of images :-)).........Derek

G/day Derek,
The brass rod is 1mm diam.
I have no info on how mine cage operates. With cage on an angle to stern I assumed that gravity would roll next mine into pivot nest and you would then crank handle to release.

Hi painting of hull almost complete need to apply numbers will most likely use a stencil.
Paint scheme is not based on any particular boat.
