Good day. I decided to show what I can do with this model thanks to your advice ... I ask you not to throw at me slippers and pillows right away .. I'm still learning :thinking: .. then I will ask questions here as they occur :worship_1:
.... and now, in order: .... the model of Tamiya, the Prince of Wales .... etching: Pontos and Eduard and a lot of different things are still mostly from the North Star...as well as sheet plastic and other useful materials
I want to make a model for the period of its location off the coast of Italy .... many anti-aircraft guns .. =) .... beautiful camouflage ...

The Carley rafts are amazing. Man, if this is what you do while at learning, I cannot imagine what you will be able to do when you have already learnt... :cool_2:
I will be following this construction.
Best regards from this side,
Willie.

:wave_1: Good day EJFoeth... you have not accidentally saved photos of the spotlights, especially 44 inch ones - I can’t understand how it is inside !! it is arranged and colored ... I remember that I saw them on your site, but now I can’t open that page. . = (... I will be very grateful .. :thanks:
P.S. ....I am completely unable to find anything on the Internet on these searchlights ... I am also interested in information (photos) on other models of searchlights that were put on King George :thinking:

Good evening .. So far I decided to take a break from plastic .. And to solder parts from Pontos , and started with cranes as they require a good rework. I tried to make it more or less similar to the prototype from the photographs. Now it’s about making the base of the cranes.

Nice work! Did you add the plating on the hull, or that came with the kit? I don't recall my PoW having those...
I love the scratch-building modifications you're doing as well! Those rafts and oerlikons are sublime! :thumbs_up_1:
Keep it coming!

Good afternoon. Thank you very much for your assessments ... No, initially everything was perfectly smooth as a baby's bottom ... 0.2mm plastic was glued ... on top with being on top of each other and ground into zero, a couple of stripes were added below
    Under the anchors, it was then leveled over with the help of an airbrush primer and masks made of adhesive tape...some of the old photos about the beginning of this building ..

The hull plating and adding scuttles is what keeps me from diving into the DoY build currently. You did a good job.

Good day., The moment when a 1 cm detail in a cube can take two weeks .. so, they stand in the most prominent place I had to make them myself from improvised materials. The detail from Tamia is simply terrible, and from Pontos it is very small.
