    decks material

    Hi Carl,

    you are right, fortunately I found a lot of pictures in the web, so the kit seems to be historical correct..........

    latest news..........

    Dear friends,

    just have a look at my latest progress.

    The second casemate deck.........

    preparing the walls
    [​IMG]

    and using formers for easier alignment
    [​IMG]

    the prepared casemate section
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    and assembled
    [​IMG]


    here is the status for the weekend, the superstructure of that ship is very interesting, at least because of the two independent casemate sections
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    all small uncleanliness will be covered after mounting the railing and doing a bit weathering..................

    Very nicely done, flu! There are a lot of folds and curves in that casemate...a tricky bit, but you did it masterfully.

    Cheers!

    I am impress you did so well for those curving casemate. I always spoil them... Maybe I will try next time to split teh casemate and teh main body first when building...

    Very nice "micro" work Flu. This is an expert build for sure.

    It's striking how similar your model is to the actual photo of this area.

    Very nice work as usual, FLU.
    You certainly can cut an awful lot of card in a short time!
    Beautiful job! Can't wait to see more!
