    Hi, Christophe! :D

    Excellent job on the hull! :D

    I'm glad you have encountered no fitting problems, but I am certain they would not present the slightest problem even if they existed. :D

    Such a beautiful model to behold, I am very thankful for your posts and especially your superb photos.

    Warmest greetings,

    Jim

    Hi, friends,
    The front constructions are already almost ready, there are still no stills.
    I have done the prop from pulled plastic.

    Great photos, Christophe!
    The forward house is coming out superbly. :D

    I'm not sure what you meant by the "props" being pulled plastic...I know what process you talking about, heating and pulling plastic sprues, but I'm not sure what you mean by "props"...I'm familiar with that referring to the propellers, but I didn't seem them in the photos you posted. Could you be referring to the yards on the mast?

    In any event, outstanding, awesome work, my friend!

    Looking forward to your next update.

    Cheers!

    Jim

    As always, a very crisp and clean build, Christophe! :D

    I see many struts or "props" under some of the upper deck wings that add a great deal of interest to your build. Beautiful work, indeed!

    She's an awesome build! :shock:

    Cheers!
