not very satisfying for me...so I decided to build a stair...(you can see him in previous photo)
cut the top off....make a hole in the deck...glue it on

the doors on the left & right sides of the directors are not there. what thickness of plastic are you using for the doors as seems to be a bit to thick? where the windows on the back of the directors already there or did you make them as the right window should be on the director centerline above the back door?

actualy...I think there is .. a gliding door, probably to have access to the radar on that side.
You clearly see a line above the window on capture 2 giving top side of door....well...anyway..thats how I interpreted it
I only did a side door on radar side...so 2 have it on the left side...and 2 on the right side
the plastic used is as thin as I have....ones glue hard..then limed off to min ...there must be hardly 0.2mm left
these pictures are what I used as refference
I made the windows on all...No such details in the kit

don't think that is a door on capture 2 & 3 as different shape compared to the door at the back of the director & no rail at top & bottom visible for a sliding door. .2mm is too thick as should be paper thin like .13mm https://evergreenscalemodels.com/collec ... rene-sheet is what I use.

once painted...the difference will be hard to see...after all this is scale 1/400...nobody is gonna take a microscope to check if its 0.2 or 0.18mm or only 0.13mm
bout the door...I'm sure there would be a way they made to be able to go repare the radar at any time as these radars are of capital importance ...best way is with a door..sliding...or regular...if its a door that is even with the outside panels when closed...its invisible ...specialy on a scale model...so now it is...visible

continued on my gun directors....the radar...heller kit radars for these gun directors are...awefull...not only wrong form (heller are round as real ones are rectangular) but also...well....hellers
so I deceided to make my own...had a radar grill left over from the Adm.Scheer PE ug kit...cut it in 4 equal parts...took 2bars from a 4 bar railing and a piece of plastic as base....

I found back why I was convinced there was a sliding door..
1) you see clearly there's a door
2) my idea...it glides on that structure to the right

as I realise ...I'm doing more and more small..to smaller and smaller details...I ordered some new working materials...
like drills (smallest atm 1mm...ordered 0.2-0.4-0.5mm)...lime (actual 5mm large...new1.5mm large)...plastic sheets 0.5mm atm...ordered 0.13 and 0.2 mm
this should help me making those tiny details faster...and mainly better...I hope
