to make it simple ... all modifications needed on a ship, I first make it on a picture as pictures are easy to compare with pictures... this I then do ... I forgot 1 structure modification... luckily, I saw it now so it can still be done

want to get other side at same level... even got a sailor who opened a door for me,
concentrated my efforts on bow part all you see before main guns is fixed ... missing on part before chain winches are the 20mm guns, ankers. railings and waiting for an ankorchain I bought yesterday on the internet. The 2 protection walls for the 3X 20mm guns on each side are also fixed, I'm getting to the fix all moment.

when looking at the pictures... as it was posed on the ship I found my rafts and cabstands too big.. so decided to re-work them... and my joy was immense when looking for a raft that jumped away.. I found the bow AA wall I lost 2 weeks ago

You are putting some wonderful detail into this. I am most impressed with your efforts.
I always thought the 1/500ish scale rage was the best for warships so I love your choice for this RE-DO. Keep at it.
The Revell Iowa never looked so good.

Nino.
