This is really nice. I like those little rope bundles above the boat. Did you scratchbuild the radar?

Having just built a conversion myself (Soviet Provorniy from ex Z33) I really like this type of work. You are efficient with kits at hand, and you do some scratch building but not crazy amount, and you deliver smth that looks great as a result. Very nicely done!

Indeed sir, i like too adding some scratch build parts instead of modelling out of box. I saw your work and she is really impressive model, especially weathering is excellent.

Thank you. :smallsmile:

Kubilay,

I have seen photos of TCG İSTANBUL (D340) ex-US Destroyer USS CLARENCE K. BRONSON, with and without the Mk 56 director (on tower forward of aft twin 3-in RFG mount). Do you have dates for when she did and did not have the Mk 56 director?

By the way, a nice build.

I have no exact information about dates but I know the Mk 56 Gun director on the ship when ship commissioning into Turkish service.

Obviously Mk56 Director should have been in the model, but to be honest, I didn't want to deal with such a tiny scratch build work. Instead of that i made an order for Veteran models resin set and i installed it but unfortunately there is no photo with gun director.

Thank you for good wishes. :smallsmile:

Kubilay.
