The PE does look to be a royal pain in the behind but it ends up looking fabulous, definitely worth the effort.

Hi all, well I seem to have so little time for modelling these days, i would have done double this in a day a yr ago, it's annoying how little time I get for modelling these days.

Lordy thats a lot of small detail. And as for the time thing, I feel your pain, brother. All we can do is soldier on when we can (and try to manipulate the world into giving us more time, lol).

Very nice handiwork with the PE. I know what a pain it can be.

Hi all loads still to add to this part, slow going but I do feel I'm getting there









I will admit due to my abysmally poor modelling skills I've missed some pe out, as a bit of fun can you spot out the bits I've missed out.

I think PE is pretty much beyond my ability now so I can't see me buying any more.

Hi all here is the next update,
This sub assy is finished (well as much as I'm prepared to do) I like the unpainted brass standing out against the weathered painted parts, i just wish I had the skills to use all the PE (although to be honest I don't think you would notice the bits I've left out)

Nice work. That is a considerable amount of PE.

Hi all here is the crane from the kit.



And here it is after the PE











Does anyone know did these cranes have windows in the top (I mean I don't think they stood out on those railings to hoist the ships boats on board) I can't find photos of the cranes details, I would think it would be a fairly simple job to add them if they were there.

The PE part is a VAST improvement on the kit Crane. I can't see any windows.

Superb work with the crane! Years ago I used to wonder at the whole PE thing ... that is until I started seeing finished results. Definitely worth the effort, the added detail is so superior to the kit moulded part.
