    Barry, that's some very fine work you have there! :D
    I'd say you are getting the hang of the soldering part very nicely.
    Keep those photos coming! :lol:

    Mk IV mast

    Hi All

    Going back to some nice peaceful cardmodelling for a bit this took me most of the day, one of those things where if your ham handed like me you just get it all right and a bit drops off 'cos you're too slow. Still I'm reasonably happy it looks better than the previous ones.


    Thanks for the kind encouragement folks.

    Adriano

    Have agood holiday you won't miss much I am away from the middle of next week.


    regards

    Outstanding, barry! The soldered bandstands and all the metalwork is definitely paying off.

    But... but... if you go on holiday next week we won't get any more updates!!! :lol:

    Hello Barry,
    Very nice ship.
    I like ships, but to look only them because does not trust me around them to build.

    Thank you. How about a nice modern cruise liner with flat sides almost like a cathedral

    Ajax

    You started your build just in time then you will have to keep the junkies happy and Jim is running out of excuses about moving so he will be doing some.(I hope)

    Actually, Barry, I have a few more excuses...but you're right, not many left. :lol:
    Great soldering work, my friend, she is really looking better and better with each update!
    What's this nonsense about being away for a while? You know we all look forward to those updates, and I'm not sure how long we can hold out without your daily photo updates! :lol:
    Thanks to Ajax we have some relief, but don't stay away too long, okay? Of course, there is Rob's Yamato and Mo, Scorpio's Hood, Corp Trim's Sirius and Glen's Oregon (hope I didn't leave any out, if so, it was not intentional!), so we should be fine for a while, but not for long. :D
    Connie should be getting underway in a week, hopefully, since I just cleaned out the new work space yesterday and found the boxes with her in it, so all present and accounted for. Now I just need to make the time and get to her....

    railings

    Hi All

    tried out some railings today and a ladder but you ain't seeing a photo of that. Added the torpedo crane and the funny looking thing on the bridge front is supposed to be an aerial.

    Jim

    I have to admit soldered rails are easier to attach the ship. Have to do some for Takao later

    That soldered railing is looking good, barry! And that bow shot is excellent, it really shows how narrow she is! :)

    ladders

    Hi All

    Set about soldering steps because at the moment my hands won't grapple with winches.

    For the challenged it took me ages to work out that if it's small and fiddley then cut it too big and trim it back is easier. I tried using the drawing pins with big plastic heads but could not get them in straight enough so back to old fashioned ones and give them a whack with someting to hold the wire in place.

    If the width of the step is 2mm then draw a couple of lines to use as a cutting guide and as my tweezers were magnetised I used a tooth pick to prod the steps in place. Use a toothpick to put the flux on just one step at a time with a brush I kept on flicking them out.

    I also finally realised what Robs comment meant so stick two temp bars accross to hold the sides in place chop em off later.

    You all now get a rest from daft comments while I am away hopefully I shall get my fix when I get to my daughters.

    ps Pound coins are 12mm

    regards

    Savage rails

    Hi

    Last two small pieces to forepart of bridge you can just see them below the awning rails in the second photo.

    Added the railings to the bridge deck permanently along with the scrambling net and lifebelts.

    Thanks for the update, Barry!

    That second photo shows off very well the little details you have been working on. I always liked the looks of the external helm with grating. They came out great! :D

    Hi Barry

    Looking at the build you have done with Savage even though it embeds on your system which I don't like. You just made me hit my pay pal account again :cry:

    So lets have the up dates ASAP as its your fault mate the build is so good and I need to know how to do the rest :shock: :lol:

    I have got to say the design on this is great.
    A quick question Michael is the CD locked for resizing as I like my ships in 1/250 if pos??

    Regards

    Savage Looks great, Barry! The railings for the bridge deck turned out excellently. And, wow, it even has the scrambling nets! :D
