Made the water hydrant's enjoyed that but think they look to new so will have to make them less glossy, I have not fixed them yet as have to do the pipe work underneath, and need to make the power boxes for them if that is what they are called. also side lifting beam.

Thanks for the kind comments. Thought I would have a go at detailing the gun a bit more and found some pictures to look at. some parts to still finish and tidy.
Pipe work under fire hydrant's complete.

Hi All hope your keeping well.
Just an update,
Getting to the end of the build it seems :-) [size=78%] [/size] but I do keep finding detail I have missed.
Both fast boats now secured to davits, more detail parts added, anchors need to be fixed and correct size chains to get.   
I need to get the Seaking finished and working, the netting rails port and starboard are working ok its getting the end rail to move with them.
Will not get to put her on water till new year it seems as I need to test her again in the club pool now with that extra weight on.

He is indeed (from what I have heard  :-) ) Lovely job especially with those crests. They add little spots of colour amongst the detail and military colours.
