Jon,

The other pictures didn't display on my screen and didn't realize that was the stern. I stand corrected. For some reason this Forum site will sometime display everything and sometime not when viewed on my desktop. A lot of times it will clock for up to ten minutes before displaying anything or all of the contents. The Armorama site works without any issues on my desktop.

Lovely work Michael ! You must feel relieved your project is nearly finished, although some crew figures would be nice, I wonder what your next project will be ?

Gruss,

Arjan

Wouldn't that be a little dangerous having depth charges along the bow? You think the ship will clear them before they go off in the water?
Just wondering.

Wonder no more, look at the pics on the first page, the bow is the pointy bit, the stern, blunt bit, has the depth charges & paravane...

I changed the kits depth charges to resin ones by Schatton.



1st row: Wikinger, 3 parts
2nd row: Schatton 1 part resin



A little bit different in length and diameter, but the new parts fit to the racks:

Hi Mark,
it's the Master Tool's universal fine chain set; two types
1.5 x 0.8 mm and 2.0 x 1.1 mm
I've used the last one.

Michael,

Nice job with the radio room and WC. The chain for the anchor seems to fit very well what size it the chain?

...I especially like the toilet (no pun intended), it really looks very convincing with this tiny toilet roll.



I must admit, that detail struck me as well - great work!

...and now the flags. Thin alu foil painted with Klear, the decals sealed with Klear:



carefully folded:



The signal means D X F = released by special order
Some pins to the rail and rope with the flags to the pins:
