txs for all those kind words....actualy... its not that complicated as it looks...preparation and patience is key, ...
the lines are of course all stretched sprue , the pulleys are cut from a bought plastic bar but you can use fine sprue
on the first picture you can see clearly the raw material....first I glued a cupper 0.3mm tiny bar to the "to become" pulley...wait for it to dry and harden, ...fix it to the ship at wanted angle...let it harden...then place lines...each line is individualy cut to size for a perfect fit.
the first is the complicated way I used on only 2 beams
all others the pulley are glued strait on beam

the hook was a little more complicated and was done in 7 steps
1: cupper to pulley
2:fixing step 1 on crane
3: cut 4 lines same lenght and glue them in place ..taking care hanging ends are at same hight and space in between them is equal all the way down....
4: then glue last pulley between ends of open end of the 4 lines
5: added 1 more line on each side
6: prepare and make hook
7: glue it on
between each step there is a waiting time for it to harden properly

did a first try on my 20mm AA..partialy using PE... as 1/400 PE guns are very 2D .. decided to made new gun barills to have a round volume...
looks good ... even so enlarged it still looks ok...only problem is...very time consuming again...and there's 18 of them

won't be that out of scale being the model is actually 1/403.4971 scale. the model is 37.16cm long where as the ship was 492'(149.96m) long.

Triumph68, both of our measurements & scales are right but in different ways. yours is using the current model length which as you state is 38.7cm for Burleigh's scale of 1/391.5. my scale is worked out using the beam with vertical sides not angled as the model is which changes the model length for both Bayfield(Burleigh) & Haskell(Montrose) classes.

now 14 models being worked on. if these were straight out of the box with no corrections then yes at 1 at a time but as these are being corrected then not 1 at a time. 6 models have a section taken out of their middle to shorten them to correct length wereas the bows of the New Mexico's, Tennessee's & Colorado's are extended to correct length. my USS Pennsylvania mk1 was the closes to completion with prop shafts & struts, deck vents & splinter shields all installed til I realized the correction to the model's concave hull stern was not corrected enough & the torpedo bulges was to rounded plus other details therefor USS Pennsylvania mk2. the stern is more correct in shape now as is the bulges. getting drawings off the net & other sources help me to kitbash 1 hull type into others. remember what I am doing is extreme kitbashing compared to what you have done.

these are not the only models I work on as I'm also doing these viewtopic.php?f=59&t=183327 plus kitbashing\correcting 2 1/260 scale Chinese frigates Type 053H2G Frigate with 2nd into Type 053H3 Frigate. right now I am working on the biggest model I have ever done, my 103yr old house. currently working on the dining room window that is getting a near total rebuild plus redoing the ground floor bathroom window to make it look somewhat like it did originally in style compared to when the bathroom was built about 60yrs ago. warm weather time is when I can do the windows without closing the room(s) off from the rest of the house. because of the house & working on customers' computers, I don't get to work on the models as much in the summer time.

Very nice barrels, shields and shoulder yokes on those 20mm's. :thumbs_up_1:
