Many thanks. Yes it does in this shot. I couldn't afford the proper shapeways ones lol

 

 I have now done the weathering and fitted them. I will do the prop shafts and props today the onto the many guns around the ship so it will be a slow process.

Hi all, Many thanks for looking in.

 I have done all 26 Oerlikon guns, painted and weathered ready for fitting.

26 tiny Oerlikons...tremendous tiny workmanship!

This will look superb when finished I'm sure. How was the fit of the wooden deck?  Apologies if I've missed it earlier but it really enhances the model.

 

Great work

Thanks for looking in. The deck was a great fit. only a couple of bits needed adjusting but generally very good.

 

 I have done Rangefinders and the other radar antenna. I have made one Pom Pom.
 7 more to go.

Thanks for looking in Beefy. Yes they are. I will be doing the rest this week.

 

 I thought I'd posted some pics up the other day but only uploaded so here are those I should have plus a few more. 
I have installed most of the guns now. Just the 7 Pom Poms to make. I have made and installed the Lifeboats and search lights. Just have Masts, cranes and railings to do. (and Pom Poms).

Looking really good, would it be correct to assume the first of the little boat pics is with and without the etch detail/cabin?

Really impressive boat, makes me want to dig one out....

Thank you all for looking in and your nice comments. 

@Jasper dog Yes the picture is one of the kit version and one with the PE added.

 @RGL Your build is very well made. You did an excellent job.

 I have done the 2 cranes and the masts. Just the railings and the 7 PomPoms still to do. Nearly there now.

Chris

Thanks guys for looking in. 

 @Planebuilder62 Yes i will be adding brass pedestals and an Ikea chopping board as the base when i can get to Ikea. 

 I've added the rigging to the masts today. I ordered Infini Lycra rigging thread. Amazing stuff to use.
