You can see the fittings list on the Sirmar sight I know T888 made a lot of his own but I don't have the patients, with a little adjustment and tidying the fittings look good. I have had the model for about seven years I think, where It has been in my attic and I started the build two years ago when I had finished my last projected, its been a long time as work gets in the way, but I only work on it when I feel like it.

Bit more detail added still not fixed yet need to make sure it looks correct, once I get this completed I will be able to spray hull and deck looking forward to that. ;)

On to doing the hand rails around super structure a very kind friend gave me some brass stanchions for which I could cut to hold the rail perfect fit for 1mm rod used, as you can see I can make two from one. it was becoming a concern for what to use so big thanks to Dennis Ramsden, :-)) again I will not fix yet as they will need tiding up on the ends and also will need to spray paint them.

I Am using good old Humbrol tins and air brushing it on, it has taken 4 tins reducing 50/50 using enamel thinners so far.
One more tin should do it, it may take a long time but the finish is good.

Made a decision to get the hull Finished as the weather is perfect for spraying and I did not want to get held up in traffic if I decided to go out some where.
Sprayed water line with Alclad black primer went on a treat, then decided to paint deck, this I dab on with a half inch brush 50/50 diluted which gives that nonslip surface but smooth Finnish, again it takes time and needs three coats but has a good effect. pictures show first coat and will have to cut in with small brush around detail parts.

Hi Stuart,


Re your initial comments in message 1, it's your hobby so do what you are comfy and happy with. It is only your business how you build your model, and by that it has come along really nicely. The railings and ladders look really good, and I like the look of the paint job.


We can but critique, we cannot dictate :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) Keep up the goodwork.
