The 'unsightly seam' on the crane is easy to get rid of mate. Just fill it with the Krystal Klear or Humbrol Window maker stuff. When you have it levelled out just paint it. Seam gone. You could also use the Gunze Mr Primer 500.

Jumped straight to the last page to see progress you have made Russ. I must say I am a little disappointed Russell.. tut tut..

It behooves me to say, Warren, that real life has been rather boorish of late and impeded progress where progress has been needed

But, rather like Brexit, there is a lot going on behind the scenes but not much seems to have be accomplished on face value.

However the dockyard is active on several fronts. The results of their labour are not yet ready to reveal.

The cranes in particular are nearly all glued back together. note to self-order 0.4mm wire!

Night of the Pom Poms in 1/200?! Aaargh! That would be like the IMAX version

Nice solution on the main guns Mate

KGV's look good with the main guns elevated at different angles.

Keep up the good work mate.

Cheers
