they are not triangles but sloped rectangles as they are 4 sided not 3.

'Rect-' means square, so rectangles have four square angles. You are right they are four sided, but the four angles are not square. A 'sloped' rectangle is not a rectangle but a parallellogram. And the inboard side is not parallel to the outboard side, so it's not a parallellogram either...

So who's next? Do we discuss geometric shapes here? Point was: is this a good way to improve on the Tico kit? I rather have your comments on that!

The supports look like a vast improvement to me! Given the scale, those things are extremely tiny bits and I'm impressed by your ability to achieve consistent spacing and keep them all at the proper angle to the bulwark. You must have had some awfully fine tweezers to handle them. You must have the eyes of a hawk!

Well done! :thumbs_up_1:

Thanks for the compliments! But these are not deserved. The only thing worthwhile I really have figured out is the original frame distance (4 ft) and translated that onto the model - finding out that the model was actually pretty accurate to start with, so kudos for Dragon or whoever designed it in the first place! Only the stanchions and the hawse holes were wrong, but the bulwarks themselves appeared to be spot on.

In other areas there are some errors too, but we might discuss these later on...
