Hello to all!

I am just about to fit the Artwox wooden deck to the foredeck
of Trumpeter's HMS Hood.

In the instructions (please see photo) it says to remove kit mould (red zone).

If I do this won't this spoil the model as these sections are raised?

Artwox provide PE parts to fit into the existing deck but they are not raised.

Has anyone fitted these decks? Thank you

Alan

Hi Alan, BigGrin

I`ve not fitted these particular upgrade parts, but the idea is the same with many brass etch upgrade sets.

When you remove the molding from the forward deck, all you are removing is the raised detail. This will leave you with a flat deck in those "red marked" areas.

Then when you add the brass etch to the flat deck, you will have raised areas where the etch is added. The brass etch is fitted onto, not into, the deck. The brass etch should have sharper definition of the detail for that area than the plastic had.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Often they supply alternative anchor chain to replace the chain moulded on by the manufacturer, it is likely they won't you to remove any moulding. the two little red rectangles are likely to be the chain stay mount points which may be on the etch chain.

look at your build instructions with the etch and see what is done in that area, should help you work out what to do.

Is this the 1:350 kit? if So I have built it and its very good indeed

Enjoy

Thanks Derek, Thanks Jase.

I guessed that's what needed to be done so treated myself to a Dremel
for the task!

Jase, this is the 1/200 scale version. It's huge!

Thank you both once again. Your input is very much appreciated.

Regards.

No problem Alan, BigGrin

One word of caution though. Blink

Be very careful with the Dremel, it will eat plastic.

Careful work with a scalpel is much more controlable.

Good luck

Hi Derek

Your comments are noted. I tried it on an old piece of sprue. It's
fairly controllable at it's lowest speed but I will be mindful.

Luckily I just happen to have a second foredeck kicking around so if I do
make a mistake at least I'll have another chance!

Cheers

Alan

I agree with the above the drivel will be to fast and will effectively melt the plastic with the friction even at the lowest speed. best advice is to scrape the detail with a sharp craft knife and then use an abrasive stick manually to finish off.

I have the 1:200 scale on order so looking forward to the pictures of your progress

Thank you for your replies. I will take heed
from your advice and scrape it manually.

I'm sure I can find some use for the DremelBigGrin

I am sure there are a lot of scuttles to drill out for startersBigGrin

then you can fill them with this and get some great looking scuttles,

The front end of the foredeck done-found it a bit nail-biting!
At last I can move on.

Thank you all for your suggestions.

Looks great, very nice work....Drool Drool

If you reduce the size of your pics to ensure they are no larger than 148kb then you'll find they will show on your posts. This also saves members from having to download your images to view....Cool Cool

Thank you

I think it complements the overall look
really nicely too.

Alan, With regard to image sizing I usually do
reduce them sufficiently but I'm having a
bit of a problem with my PC and can't
work out how to resolve it but will be looking into
it. I know it's a bit of a pain downloading
each time so will get this sorted ASAP. Thanks
for looking in.

Regards

Alan
