  1. Looking forward to following along with this build it will be good to see how you approach it after following @JohnWS build looking like a great start. Stay Safe beefy
  2. Hi Ned not quite sure we are seeing the same thing here. Built as per instruction sheet with the triangle frame toward the aft of the turret same as your image. I know that the trolley would be at the other end of catapult for launch but when the aircraft was launched and then recovered the crane jib would load to the nearest point. So my story is aircraft out spotting and trolley awaiting loading while turret returned to centre point and I will be sticking to that theory thanks for the input though I need all the help I can get.

  4. Small update after a weekend away at the lakes doing some walking with missus b and the dog. Built up the aircraft catapult for the aft turret then added the shield and supports then added more bridge railings. Stay Safe beefy

  13. Third time lucky adjusted all three again and that is it no more adjusting so onto primer and deck paint and some work on the bridge sections while waiting for the oil washes to dry use base coat of deck tan and then raw umber oils and sky grey thinned enamel paint.

  20. Those things on the hull side are my interpretation of the drain pipes along each side of the hull there is a picture of them at the bottom of page one of this very thread from the RA Burt books. . Renown also looks like she had them on the torpedo bulges great reference material for anyone who can read them. . Small up date on the build managed to get the breakwater built up. Stay Safe beefy
  21. Know what you mean Stuart funny how the dark nights turn us in to nocturnal model builders. Small progress barrels replaced I think OK and also managed to patch up some of the mould problems with scrap PE fret. Stay Safe beefy
