Drazen,

Thanks for the answer. I should have guessed it myself - as usual the most brilliant ideas are the simplest.

Good luck.

Yevgeniy

Hello again!

First, I want to thank you all for your kind words and comments. :thanks:

@Ingura - thank you for your remark and photos, you are not nitpicking! These photos are indeed interesting, I don´t have them in references I´m using for my König build. Will correct those torpedo doors, it´s not too late and does not require too much extra work.
Meanwhile, here are the pics from yesterday. The torpedo net booms are fabricated from 0.8 mm medical needles. I decided to discard the ICM´s because they are too short (see below), and make my own ones.
Boat davits are also glued in their positions. I drilled and shaped a hawsepipe for the stern anchor in the center rear of the hull, so it lines up properly with the molded hawsepipe in the aft deck. Very carefully I managed to drill an eyelet on the anchor for attaching the chain.
Nameplates were also added on upper hull sides.

Nice and useful pics, thanks again. Although König had no stern tube - one bow, two mounted on each side - that photo is particularly interesting.
She is going to be in her pre-Jutland fit, so no liferafts for this baby! :D :D Nevertheless I am curious - what is the correct colour for liferafts on German warships, if not yellow?

Hi, Peter!
I wonder: Does that rule apply for the textile part of the float, too? ...or would that be canvass-colour?
TIA
Guido

Quick question...Did they carry white circle air identification markings on turret tops at Jutland?

Thanks,

How did you make the brass eyebrows for the scuttles?

Well, I don´t really know. There is no photographic evidence to confirm that. On the other hand, there is a photo of battlecruiser Seydlitz steaming home after the battle which clearly shows distinctive white circle painted on top of her forward 280 mm turret, so what bothers me is - can this be appliable for uppermost turrets forward and aft on ALL German capital ships during this battle, too...? :anyone:

I used horizontal bars from 1/700 railings.

They were surplus pieces; the rest of the railings I used to make funnel rings. They were cut to correct length and 1.5 mm drill was used to bend them to shape

Hi yevgeniy,
if you want to really go to town on your dreadnoughts, try having some of the hatches on the skylights open (only in harbour of course!). they would have had a glass hatch underneath which could also be opened for fresh air.

regards

Steve

That's a brilliant idea!
