    Hello All,

    Slowly but surely the progress continues.

    Here is the start of the Flying Bridge. I hope to have the rest of the deck vents done today and perhaps a few more of the 8 inch gun mounts. The wife is out of town on business so I can do some serious work... :wink:

    Here we go. Got the bridge and rear walls on the upper platform. Also added the railings to the bridge.

    Looking stellar, Glen ! Looks like you did a great job cutting out those bridge windows too. That's always a tedious part, and not so easy to keep them straight once you put stress on them by gluing something on top.

    A bit more work last evening. The forward Gun turret and some of the bits on the rear of the flying bridge. Sorry for the focus probs, my regular digital is out of town. :roll:

    Hi Glen

    Comeing together very, very well.
    We don't mind the out of focus, if the other digital was there we would not get enough of this great build. :lol:

    Look forward to more SOON

    Regards

    And you can always make up for it when the digital camera returns (with the wife)...and you were able to get a whole lot done in the interim. :lol:
    Those are great update shots anyway, and we are all happy you posted them. :D

    Here are some more of the small bits. I am using them as a distraction from the larger issues. The boats seem daunting at this point so I think I will try to finish as many of the details as I can while things are quiet. :)

    Some items on the fore deck.

    And the first funnel.

    I hope you enjoy them.

    I certainly do, Glen! The whole model is coming together incredibly well.
