Thank You Guys! I have a little break in my workshop because of lots of business trips.

Light box can't handle the mightiness of my Mo :big_grin:

I honestly have no idea how will I make photos of whole hull... :thinking:

Very nice work Wojtek! Details look sharp and crisp and the paint looks awesome.

Looks like you're running out of space in your light box too.....had the same issue with my 1/350. Good thing you only have to add the main hull to really see how big it is ;)

Now, it is just to put this all together... :big_grin:

I think it is about 2/3 of work with Superstructure and it looks like this:

Joe, Larry,

Thanks a milion! :thumbs_up_1:

As for shading: I use black pirimer and additionally after gloss varnish I use panelliner from Tamiya to pop those elements a bit. However, with next ship I will change the way of painting. With black primer colours look a little bit too dark form me... I will use grey primer for base and black paint only for preshading.

It's looking really nice, Wojtek! You're doing a super job. I especially like the way you make the vertical piping on the tower to stand out. How did you do that? Dis you spray a black undercoat before you put the grey on? :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1:

Thank You Guys very much for support and kind comments.

I really try to do my best but this Pontos set is very much demending!

Now, I am at the stage where all main elements are already on the superstructure. There are still many parts to be mounted but I feel that improvement is good :smallsmile:

And this is how Superstructure looks like now:

I somehow never noticed this project.

Very nicely done! Your work is proving to be very sharp.

Excellent result with the 40 mm Bofors.

Bofors are finished (all 20). Unfortunately, I will not be able to do this better...

Greetings Wotjek,

Just wanted to let you know that a lot of my MK-51 parts are broken too. I've made 2 of them, just to see what they looked like, and then went on to the MK-37s, which I'm still fussing over. Dang, there's a lot of little tiny parts, but then every sub assembly I've built so far has lots of tiny parts. When we get all done with this beast, I wonder if anybody looking at it will appreciate all the tiny intricate details that went into building it?

I love the job you did on the rear funnel. The weathering is superb.

Take care, and keep plugging along.

Going further I have finished rear funnel.

I have also started working on Add-on set but there comes disappointment... 1/3 of resin parts are broken! You can imagine how frustrating it can be as those parts are so tiny! Furthermore there id no sufficient no. of PE parts (for Mk-51 directors).

Nevertheless, I have started my work...

I have made all of Mk-51 directors for Bofors. Just look how small they are:

And for last, my first steps with Bofors build. I just want to share with You that I have decided not to put covers for all of those tiny details under the gun mounts. I know it shouldn't be like that but I just can't accept loosing so beatiful details...

Thank You Scott! I've learned my lesson on weathering with HMS Dreadnought the hard way...

I had an opportunity to look into Your build - Great work on Iowa!

I have one more question to fellow Mighty Mo modelers: in Trumpeter instruction there are 32 gun directors when in Pontos Add-on set there are only 30 of directors made in resin parts.

How many of those should there be?

Thanks in advance!

Great work, I like the subtle weathering.

Thank You Guys for Your support!

So we go on further:

Now is the time for the navigation bridge. Fitting of the parts in this area of the ship is far from perfect but I have managed to put it all together. Most of the parts on the picture are in the final stage which means that the weathering is final so I will not be able to make it worse :cool_2:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Next, it is time to fit the ship with MK-37 Fire contorl system x 4 pieces. I must admit that it was a real pain in the a... 4 small elements and it took 4 evenings to be done...

Here is how it has been done:

First, good organization of work is the clue to success :big_grin:

Image

and the 1st stage is done:

Image

Further preparations:

Image

2nd stage is done and now preparations of resin parts and bases for systems:

Image

And final effect looks like this:

Image

Image

As for the primary fitting to the ship it looks like this:

Image

Image

Image

And some additional photos:

Image

Image

Image

The painting of those gas bottles has got to be perfected...

Image

Now is the time for mounting millions of small details to the structure... It is endless work with this Big Mo but I love it! :cool_2:

Looking really good, Wojtek! You are doing an awesome job! I'm still working on small sub-assemblies - MK 57 gun directors right now, but it's slow going when you only get 3-4 hours a week to play. When are you gong to start on the quad Bofors? Be sure to follow Jason's tutorial in the Tips & Tricks forum when you do. It helped a lot!

Love your pictures! Keep posting them!
