I started the Modelik Paris hull a few weeks back after recieving it. I was still working on the USS Porter but just had to dive into this ship. I got so wound up in that I only did just go back to finish the Porter. This is one of the best hulls I ever built. I used balsa 1/32 sheet for the main deck and 1/16 for all of the bulk heads and keel. The fit is tremendous on this model. I added no fillel for any of the hull plating and other than painting did no other refinements. The plating is the smoothest I have done yet. I got so excited with the hull I just had to keep going. The main turrets were the only issue so far. The wrap is off, I had to cut between the two barrel openinga and overlap almost 3 mm to get the barrels to line up with the holes. This is an error in the model as all of the other parts fit fine. I added extra paper to the back side of each turret to account for the now too short wraps. I will post progress photos from this point foward.
