Chris,

Coming along  :-))  if you need any more consoles I have several more as I made a batch for the OHP. They have come out better Due to Iím using a different resin that help with fine detailing.
So if you do just PM me and Iíll post them. :-))

HI Dave thanks an yes it was a job trying to fit in the glazeing as just one glue smear an it would have been disarter as the bridge is in my opinion the first thing people look at when the model is on show or at shows an i dint want to heve to rework these bridges an im fairly pleased at how they turn out an just a few tiny cracks to fill up an repaint as they show up terrible in the pics an  the both bridges  will be able to be lifted off the main S/S an parted to fit in crew figures so a job well done i think now got to make a fit the window wipers
