I've been messing around with the subject model for a few months now. My wife suggested I post it on-line to share what I've been doing. First time posting. I'll see how it goes for a start. Hope you like it. Photo intensive.
Flag staff. Telescoping Albion Alloys Tube. Clear sprue Lantern. Hatch Dogs.
Smoke Discharger. I see I forgot to champher the rear strap. Oh, well.
Port rear Torpedo Roll-Off Rack. Silver is flattened solder balls.
Engine Room Vent. Flattened rod is supposed to represent wing bolts.
Rear Turret Ring. Blocked in rear wall. New details on Dinghy.
Other Port side Torpedo Roll-Off Rack.
Hatch Dogs, Running Light Guard, Antenna Base, corrective strip.
20mm. New Recoil Spring from solder, misc. details.
37mm. Reworked base, misc. details.
Tried my hand at making a new Handle/Trigger detail. Not so hot.
I'll get back to this later.
Blocked in Forward Turret and added fasteners.
Did some extra work on the Mast. Still need Running Light and Rope Tie-Downs.
New Hatch Dogs, relocated Cabling, Albion Alloys telescoping tube for Rails and Boat Hook.
Pin-Mounted so I can lay the Mast down.
Did some Cockpit work.
Notes to work out Camber.
Helping hand, aft.
Another one, forward.
New Chine and Gunnel.
Doesn't appear so, but I sanded the keel to sharpen it a bit.
New Carriage Bolts.
The next couple of imagery are figuring out the deck contour.
Lots of notes to figure things out.
Search Light with bulb. Rotates, elevates, and depresses.
Figuring out the Life Raft Rope Fencing.
Muffler detail. I see I lost a Clamp Fastener. A little over zealous with using masking fluid as a temporary fastener.
40mm. Used a Technical Manual for detailing.
Engine Room Deck. I removed the window, shaped some rod, then vac-formed the rod to make the window.
Machine Gun. The Trigger detail atop the guns is made up. I didn't want to mess with trying to make it accurate. Maybe I'll go back to it.
Spent shell box.
37mm. Reworked the Handle/Trigger condition.
Also the Recoil Mechanism.
Port Running Light.
Managed to make and thread the fencing to the Raft without swearing. New paddles.
Starboard Running Light.
Mast Running Light.
Anchor. I 'll be looking at the Rope-to-Chain fastening condition. I'm not sure this is how the two connect.
It's a Big One!
Thank you for looking in on a Newbie!
