That's a bummer, but you'll have the experience from the first time to make it better and maybe a bit faster.

Nice project as a whole too...

Hi All,

I have managed ti make some progress at last, heading towards the TF 72 regatta on 25th November !

The missile gantries are now fully attached to the forward deckhouse and the starboard launchers are now attached.

Foremast has been repaired and is actually fitted for a rotating top plate :thumbs_up_1:

Internal illumination is fitted and the nav lights are operational.

Next step is to complete the port side launchers and to finish the fordeck painting beneath the missile gantries and to finish installing the bridge deck and foremast. Still a long way to go, but she will be recognisable at the regatta as a Slava!

Enjoy the pics.

Andrew

looking good mate :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: :woo_hoo: :woo_hoo:

don't forget to fit some bollards (pinned) fore and aft so you can moor her! (or are Soviet ships "him"..... :heh: )

Cheers Bruce

PS: The full size ship is on the cover of Australian Warship magazine issue 97 I saw at newsagency today....
