Approaching the end. Added all the rails and the remaining PE. All left now is the paint touch-ups, the flag and some minor, expendable details. After that, it's back to the other ships, especially the Unión.

So, she's finished. Calling it a day. Might add crew/flag later. Have redone the top masts, since the PE was too delicate and basically over-etched at spots. Added rangefinders to B and C turrets. Ran out of spare ones for E turret though. Added all the secondary guns, including the weird stern mount, which was removed quite soon. On the one hand, quite pleased with finishing a dreadnought-sized build in what accounts for me as a record time, and felt some parts could have been done sharper: the cage masts and the searchlights, painting around the platforms. Will probably discover more issues as I stare along.

@Gordon: that's a sharp Chevalier.

Michel,
Great looking build, your finished product looks terrific.

Love the old BB.

I swear, I'll get back to the Scharnhorst... eventually.
