OK all Scuttles (164) have been drilled out along with the Mesh Hull Shutters. They will have P/e Inserts added soon. Both for and aft Decks have now been added. The Bow Fit was awful so some Putty and Plastic Rod will be needed. More to come soon.....Cheers mark

The Mideships Galleries are now starting to be added along with their appropriate P/E. The Lighter gives you an idea of the Kit's size. More to come shortly.....Cheers Mark

That is awesome! Can't wait to see this progress. Where do you get the photo etched parts for the ships (I'm usually more on the model car side of things).

Thank you for the comments my Friend. Much appreciated. I source my P/E from different suppliers. Most P/E companies put out dedicated P/E Sets for a particular Ship. One place I do go to is Freetime Hobbies in the States. They have a large range of P/E and not only for Ships but most other modes of transport also......Cheers mark

I have changed my mind on her and will complete as of early 1944. Her Hull was Grey and Green with a Camo Flightdeck. All the Hull and Deck Railings and now aboard. I had to build a Bow A/A Platform so reworked some parts off Trumpy's Kirov Class Cruiser. More Pics to come soon.....Cheers mark
