    Another great series of update photos, Christoph! :D

    Superb job putting the cranes together, along with the rigging wire and all the little details.

    I can't say enough about the quality of your photos...simply outstanding!! :D

    Looking forward to the next installment.

    Cheers!

    Hello friends,

    Today pleases me after a little longer break to present new pictures.
    8 small cannons are already ready and on right ones put been stuck. The anti-aircraft puts in the rear is also already ready. Now I build the main mast in front. For it I use different material as for example toothpick, wire etc.
    Here a few photos I have prepared for you.

    Absolutely magnificent, Christoph! :D

    All the detail work you do with building railings and ladders, adding crane rigging, and everything else you do is amazing to watch.

    Hello dear friends,
    As well as yesterday I have promised, today I already show the ready built masts. For the construction of masts I have paper, wood, and wire as a building material used. I have painted all that with color Humbrol 64.
    Now the sloops are in it. 10 boats were on the ship. I have a boat already ready, thus remains to me another 9 different beiboote to build. All windows are cut out and are unterstuck with "Tesa". But about that point I will report later.
    Here a few photos of ready already masts

    With the best greetings to you all friends
    Christoph

    Very beautiful lifeboats :shock: How can you cut out these holes from such a small boat deck without damaging paper around? Very nice job indeed. I'm looking forward to see more photos and these boats attached to the main ship!

    Good luck,

    Mindaugas

    Witaj Scorpio!
    Piękny model.
    Bardzo mi się podoba.
    Kawał dobrej roboty!
    Szkoda, że Bismarck w skali 1:250, bo fajnie by się prezentowały razem.
    Pozdr.

    Hi, Christoph! :D

    What a beautiful little gem those power launches are! I bet you had a lot of fun building them and adding those little details. They came out great!
    I love the way those delicate little screws came out, an outstanding job, my friend. :D

    Once again, superb photography, thanks!

    Cheers!

    Christoph, you have done an excellant job on the ship's boats. i can't see that small anymore let alone being able to do that type of work. They are works of art in themselves, bravo, that bar gets raised higher and higher, truly a master.
