    Looks great. I wouldn't paint it if I were you. I wouldn't notice any difference if you hadn't tell anything about it.

    Hi Scorpio

    The images do not show the problems you discuss.
    It looks quite accurate.
    Will you seal the hull pieces before you paint it?

    Look forward to more reports and tips.

    Best greetings,

    Scorpio,
    I have to agree with Bill.
    I should have such problems when building my ships! :lol:
    She looks great as is; I can only imagine how good she is going to appear once you "correct" this "problem"!
    Great photos!!

    Scorpio,

    Your models keep raising the quality limits! How are we ever going to keep up with you and Swinger? :) Now that you've done all of the port holes you have to show us how and what you used! Sorry my friend but you started it :)

    Talk to you soon

    Scorpio,

    Again, your doing beautiful work. But you must stop. Your
    starting to generate feelings of inadequacy in my modelling
    abilities. (Modeling abilities only, I see you lot coming in for
    the kill!)

    Keep it up, I love these pictures. Some of your techniques
    do transfer well over to the winged side.

    Thanks!

    Ray

    The most difficult task with the construction phase, was adaptation of the board walls to the run line of deck

    Hi Scorpio

    Amazing build as always.

    I take it from the amount of things you have had to correct from the hull, deck and now the superstructure, that this kit does not fit very well?

    with all this in mind it makes your build even more amazing :shock:

    Great work, always love to see your up-dates

    Regards

    Rob

    Looks like "Rodney" allready. I think the mods mean I will leave this one alone. I guess that means doing "Fuso" next, unless Roman brings out "Hood"

    Thanks for the photographs
