First of all glue the deck onto the upper mast deck.and glue the 2 half's of the conning tower together.then glue the conning tower to the deck.paying attention to which way round it goes it has 2 holes in one side which need to be on the right hand side.then glue the 5 bits of etch together that make up the ammunition hoist,then glue this to the deck at the front.then glue in 3 lockers around the conning tower,I had to cut bit off bottom of tabs for these to get them to sit on deck flush.then a further part is glued in those 2 holes mentioned before. Then glue in the 2 bits of preshaped handrail.we also get 2 replacement anchor rings, I not put mine on yet as I'll have to remove anchors to paint the red portion of deck. Cheers mick. BigGrin

First of all glue the 2 rangefinders onto the admirals bridge deck, then glue in 2 signal lamps.then glue in 2 loudspeakers one each side.then bend 2 bits of handrail and glue on the grated portion of deck. Then there's 2 bits of preshaped handrail. To go on the small platforms where the rangefinders are, mine just needed small squeeze in to fit properly.then there 2 platforms to bend and fit under the admirals bridge deck. Then glue in the angled ladders one each side.then there are 3 antenna supports to glue on. Then glue the admirals bridge deck assembly to the upper mast assembly,I had to trim the rear tabs to get this to seat properly. And just put the tops of the angled steps into holes of deck above them.BigGrin

Hi thanks to all who looked in and left comments much appreciated, on we go.
Issue 47
First of all we attach 2 more the yellow liferafts, then glue in 4compass 2 on the admirals bridge and 2 on the foretop gallery, then it's bend 2 more bits of handrail one fixed to each of the fore mentioned assemblys, then there are 3 circular rails to glue to the conning tower.then 2 more bits of handrail are glued onto the admirals bridge. Then we fit the foretop gallery to the admirals bridge. Then it's make up to ladders, now here is an error to say the least in the instructions, they built them the wrong way round ie the back of the ladders face the front,I just turned mine around so the steps looked right unfortunately this puts the location pins on top of the ladders instead of at the bottom where they should be, so I cut these off, anyway looks better this way, even though they end up not locating in the holes in decks anymore.hopefulpy if any more ladders they get them the right way round from now on.Then there are 3pipes to be fitted to the rear of forward superstructure. Cheers mick. BigGrin
