BigGrin Great idea with the jig. Does it hold it down securely, or just resting?

Held in firmly with six locking screws. Two on each end and two on the sides. Really happy with the results… thus far. I’ll put up more pics after I install the module.


Short 60 second video showing making and testing the jig. :-)

Opportune time for some snaps, now that its all back together.Cool

The brown wash really brings out the detail in the planking.

AA guns, wing bridges and railings installed. Issue 87.

I also added silicon grease to the AA guns and wing bridges to stop them flapping / wobbling around.

Spot the difference...

First batch of crew have arrived on deck. 20 or so installed, another 100 to go.

I've just applied randomly at the moment. I'll set their final positions when she sets sail.

Adds another dimension to the build.

Hi Simon,
I see you have used cable ties for cable management. Is this in the instructions or did you put these on as your own idea?
Regards

Hi Glenn, my idea. I run a tight ship. :-)

I just had to give the front gun some more slack in the cable so the turret could turn freely. No probs now. Looks neater, and i like neat things.
