Hi CJK no pictures straight from the camera on to the p/c. Then right click on picture then edit then resize  then save has.  All these steps are done using the paint program.

Hi Guys just a few pictures showing the secondary turrets these  are still under construction and not painted. I have made them removable by using magnets.

I like that idea Stan - magnets and locating pins / holes - belt and braces, so to speak.  :-))

Hi Stan,


A question if I may - are the anchor chain tension holders located somewhere under the focsle deck?


Just curious...

Hi Ray no the chains are quite long allowing the tension fittings to be fitted in the centre section. Plus easy to get too

Hi Stan, do like the magnet and pin idea.
Question, how are you going to seal/ water proof the wood decks

Hi T888 I have already tried thinned Humbrol varnish on a wood deck test piece with no problems. The edges will be sealed with thin superglue hope this answers your questions.

HI Guys once again only a little done today. Rear gun turret will be held place using magnets  this will allow access to the radio on /of switch. Pictures show magnets installed and gun turret glued to its mount Other pictures are just general shots sorry about the mast picture. Hopefully it will be at Blackpool.
