Thomas,

Nice work closing those gaps with Krystal Klear. I haven't tried that product yet, I am going to have to get some and give it try. Again nice work on your cruiser.

sorry mates for the radio silence lately - Im still alive but struggling with all these tiny PE-parts for the 25 mm triple AA guns. I am sure my eyes will deterior at least one diopter until all these guns have been finished. The carpet monster is another serious thread here too...


Here are the parts of the six remaining shielded AA-guns. I do use a mix of Flyhawk and BIGBLUEBOY parts.


These are the first two prototypes finished. Another six shielded and two unshielded are still to come


And when we accomplished that there are the sixteen single 25 mm guns waiting for me

Very tidy work Thomas indeed,

The "prototypes" look excellent. I know what you mean about the eyesight. I am beginning to think I am going to have to give in and get some kind of magnification to aid me.

Production line job now mate.

Good luck.

Cheers

Looks great Thomas!

have to say, I'm just a tad envious you can spend the whole weekend on your build: My wife n kids would never allow that!

Outstanding work, Thomas!

The brass 25mms look just right. I too am envious... I wasn't able to get much modeling done this past weekend...

Thomas,

Amazing work on your AA Cruiser. Really enjoyed catching up and look forward to seeing her commissioned.
