Thanks Ian,
Will look at your solution, but may not work as I donít have much room, as Iíve added so much detailing inside.


Thanks for your interest in this and Your ideas. Keep them Coming Please , itís alway good to bounce ideas around.

I have an idea as a solution - but currently building a sudo lori / murphy bed for the eldest, so cannot do any work on a prototype, the issue is the hinges between the doors, there are dolls house hinges and they would need fetling to the 8 mm, looking forward to your solution.

HI Dave many thanks for the link to the magnets  :-))  but im not goin to make it like yours where the helo is towed in an out of the hanger as 1. im not that good a modderler to be able to manage this an plus i want my seaking helo on the deck running up with both rotors goin as ive already got the motors to do this what you have done makin the helo pull in an out of the hanger is way beyond my skills im afraid but its brilliant idea an very nice to see working  :-))
an ive already bought my magnets but these are just to hold down the decks placements  so there is access to the hull but the your idea i wanted to copy on your ship was your bridge layout as i think this was brilliant but im goin to add some tiny led's flashin in the bridge to bring it to life if  you know what i mean but your ship is goin to be a show model when its done

Must be a modellers curse, I also looking at what Ive made, but only see the faults.


Look at when you get the shakes that its away of your body saying take a brake and come back to it later. :-))

Made up the two anchor stocks today. May look at trying to take a mould off one, just to see if I can with the all fine detailing.

AN again hi Dave any chance of some more full pics of her  all round so i can see your present state of your build as i like to study the pics of her as i nearly went for one of these ships to build when i see them in the film BATTLESHIP  an i thought the ships at flank speed looked fantastic  an i will have to rewatch that film again as i enjoyed it so much but i must admit it upset me to see those lovely ships cut in half an yes i know its only a film but still got to me
