Hello All,

I have been building this beautiful ship for over 3 months. It is the first model which I have decided to build more seriously... This is why I have used the Pontos detail set. It is still not perfect and I know there is a lot for me to learn about modelling but still I am quiet happy with the result :smallsmile:

I am opened to Your opinions and feedback :smallsmile:

Ahou Wojtek!

" I am opened to Your opinions and feedback "

The model looks pretty good , well done-- I have not studied it for flaws as such!

However the only immediate --to me--glaring omission I noticed...
was that the deployed torpedo nets on the swinging booms are completely devoid of the rigging required to operate and support the booms...

a good background read here
http://www.gwpda.org/naval/nets.htm

see images below

Best wishes

Jim Baumann :thumbs_up_1: :wave_1:

note the brailing davits for the nets at the deck-edge

Thank You Jim,

You are totally wright - it needs correction. I will do this next week also replacing the flag which is from the set and looks horrible...

This is the kind of feedback I was looking for! :thumbs_up_1: :wave_1:

Thank You Bob very much! I still think weathering is a little bit overpowered...

Torpedo nets were included in Pontos PE set. I can't imagine how could anyone do it by himself...
