Hello,
And thank you for your comments.
I still working  on the wheelhouse's roof. Many details to represent but with the grey colour's I don't know if  it would be good.
It's the beginning of the funnel in the same time.

Those structures are excellent. The shape of that funnel is especially complex to make in thin material.

Hello,
After a long break, I 'm back on my model. It was a little bit boring and difficult to complete the funnel so I've decided to work on the back roof.

Funnels phase me Midori. I like the round ones, but the funny shaped ones mm, I suppose it is down to planning and getting stuck in.

Yes, the Exocet launcher boxes are a challenge to get just right. I did some diddy ones years back for a client, and the ribs took some getting parallel. They look good Midori  :-))

Hello,
At first, thank you for your comments.
Now, MM38 exocet launchers are nearly completed. Paint is missing, I'll scheduled it in next weeks.
I've started an anti-submarine rocket launcher for small deep, old technology and not sure it was very efficicient.
 I'll post some photos next week.

Hello,
I'm working on the defence of the boat. It's time to work on the anti submarine rocket launcher.It s an old system which was introduced in french navy during the 50's.These one were used to fight again submarine up to 200 m deep.

Hello,
And thank you for your comments, it shows me I am on a good way.
I 've start the 100 mm turret gun which is on the front of the ship. I've used different kind glass paper in order to get the round part of each side.

I just started laughing with delight when I saw the amazing complexity of your brass work in the railings on that mast! Along with the ASW and turret, this is an amazing model Midori!

How many of us would put flat bars around our weapons mount and be really happy they are equally spaced and more so if they are level! Those semi-circular cut outs are really neat and add so much to the build. Lovely work as well on yet more brasswork  %%   :-)) :-))

Is the tube under the barrel an evacuator system?

I'd hate to be the one on the structure above the funnel if they were at sea, not least due to the fumes from the funnel, and how greasy / filthy did it get. In awe at the detail.
