As I am currently building the sistership I am specially interested in your way of doing this.

do you - by any chance - know if there is a resin set of blastbags for the 38cm and 15cm turrets?

Work has now commenced on her Bridge Area. To say there was little Detail is an understatement. Have added Brass and Resin to update and detail her Lower Bridge Area.  Have added P/E Bridge Strakes and Look out Positions. Also included are Ladders, Engine Room Vents and Railings. Resin includes Voice Pipes and Compass Repeaters. More to come soon.....Cheers mark
