Excellent work with what looks like some tricky etch, especially inside the funnel.

Cool Cool Cool

Well done

Thanks for looking in Guys and your nice comments.

Things are slow at the moments as figuring out the best way to build her and which order to fit parts before or after painting and before or after wooden decks etc.
I bought the Top drawings Tirpitz book and that gives me so much info. I will try to correct what I think will be noticed plus a few others just for the sake of it lol.
 
 The portholes were mainly correct but had to remove four and add about ten in the correct places. 

I changed the plastic gun tub and changed it to a strip of old PE fret.

I have joined the two decks together and sanded and then decided to add the cabling along the structure.

Air vents have been replaced and tried to recreate and position them from the plans.

I also notice that some of the solid railings were too short so extended them with Styrene.
I have added the cutouts for the Periscope too.

WOW Chris, no one can fault your attention to detail!
Most people probably wouldn't have picked up on half of what you have corrected. But it's all the better for it ThumpUp

Cheers guys for the nice comments. Yeah some of the detail I probably could have left but once you start it just goes up.

Firstly started by splitting another component in half to aid in fitting and painting. I thinned out the walls on it as you can see one done in the picture and the other side not. I then modified the other section of it fitted it then put in a wall that should be there and the supports. I then made a couple of vents and then added the wiring and some light fittings(little white blocks on the walls). Also in various places I have put replacement boxes (see by the white styrene).
Now I have started added the MK1 portholes. I have some WEM ones but are not as goo so will use the for the Portholes with no Cover. I've ordered some more MK1's as there isn't enough in one set.

Thanks Chris

Thanks guys for the nice comments.

I have nearly done one side of this module, I've added all the portholes some more doors and some extra detail not included. I've added some of the boat racking as well. The instructions show three on this side but the plans only have two so two it is.
