    Smashing!
    Thanks so very much for sharing those build photos, Jorg.
    Just one question...how did you make those railings? They look superb!
    If you could, I would love to find out how you managed to build such excellent railings.

    Thanks again,
    Cheers!

    Thanks, Jorg.
    What do they provide in the set? They don't provide any photos of the set so I was curious what it includes. It's very rare to find a railing set in 1/400 scale, and there are only a few sources that I am aware of.

    Cheers!

    Hi Jim,

    I´ve made a picture for you. The set has 3 different types of railing.

    cheers,

    Thank you, Jorg (Korvette)!
    I appreciate your taking the time to post a photo of it!
    That looks like the railing I purchased a few years ago but I didn't realize it was a GPM product. Good stuff! I often make up my own using glued thread, but using photoetch is a lot easier, and comes out better.

    Thanks again!
    Jim

    ***** ******!! Now that's a GREAT model!
    Can you show another pic with a ruler, or even a pencil, so I can see the true magnitude of your job?

    Arigato!
