Colour and general sculpt is more less OK but the oats are too obviously visible, so are the creases of paper on right angle to the waves themselves. Serves me right for 'improoving' something that was perfectly OK hahaha. No big deal it's a minor 2-3 day setback and I do have planty od other things to work on while the new water will be drying.

I know it could be better, but as the say: Rome wasn't built in one day. That's my second model on the water and fourth water ever done.... I see progress, so it isn't that bad ;)

Gidday Mick, it looks very good to me. I also like the additions you've done to the upperworks. Regards, Jeff.

Gidday Mick, never too many photos. The one you decide to skip will probably be the one that shows a little tip other modelers could have used.

     And I repeat, I like the additions you do to the superstructures, funnel etc. A question if I may? The railing (or whatever it is) around the bridge I've noticed on many British ships but I am not sure what it does or what it is for. Any Idea? Two ideas that I was wondering - either it creates an updraft to reduce wind across the bridge or it is armour plate, but it doesn't appear deep enough for that. If anyone can enlighten me.

     Regards, Jeff.

Love the step-by-step progress of the smaller sub assemblies. Sea base looks great.

Thanks, as far as I know it's wind and spray deflector . I'll move on to the stern superstructure now

Gidday Mick, and thanks. That was first guess as I've seen them around sponsons supporting directors and such on cruisers and battlewagons also. Regards, Jeff.

FineMolds  Pom-pom, I was disappointed with lack of handrails, but managed to build sth from scrap, It's not great, but it's so small that it'll do ;)

Impressive stuff indeed. This level of detail in 1/700 is awesome, and is what sets such models apart from others.

They look fantastic. Looking forward to them being painted, 

Does PE detail/ barrels come with kit, if not, from where?

Thanks, no the kit one is that sad one on the last picture. The good ones are Flyhawk FH730002.
