Hello Stu,


Yes, this is the model I was considering copying your idea for, assuming you have not pattented the design :-))
I had planned to use the brass etched type as per my other builds, picture showing them on a previous build. There OK but not very realistic.


But, after seeing what you have achieved I'm considering changing to your design. Regards Jon

Had a very productive couple of days this weekend, been focussing on detailing the hanger area.
Now need to strip it down and start painting all the parts ready for final assembly. Jon

Wonderfull job Jon very nicely made an very neat layout an well done on the liferaft containers  when I built my hms Edinburgh in 1/64 scale I found they were very tedious to make but like yours when on the ship it really sets it off  :-))
