Another week gone by. The wife is no longer hassling me about all the white places. The conditions were terrible outside for photographing detail, but with help from Photoshop, I think the pics are adequate for posting. All things considered, the project has been a success. I set out to see if the 1:400 scale JSC kits can be enlarged and, without major redesigning of the kit, make the basis of a respectable large-scale model. I think I've shown the answer is a definite yes. The detail level I've taken it to will probably not satisfy the super-scale builders, but I think the reworked JSC kits would give them a solid structure for adding superdetails to. Still a couple of tiddly-bit parts lying on the workbench to be added, and a couple more small parts that I really should draw and add to the kit (the original JSC kit looks as if the designer intended putting in the ladders on the forward end of the superstructure and some ready-ammo lockers near the aft gun tubs, but didn't get the proverbial round tuit prior to publishing). Then the exacting stuff (railings and rigging).
