Anchors, ( forget Foeth's anchors and chains for his superb Hood as said before I will accept some compromise !! )

I scratchbuilt the third anchor, unfortunately in the WEM kit there were just two. If John will read here I hope he will wonder to include a third anchor in the future.

Ciao!

Dino

Hi Jim! I have a YSW QE hull that I traded last year, an imperssive amount of resin :big_grin: . It should be easy tu scratchbuild the rest, since most of the superstructures are already casted in one block, including the hangars! I should modify my master for the 15" towers increasing the elevation and I could use the WEM PE set for the King George class to fit her.... we will see, now I must concentarte on the Barham without distractions!

ciao

Dino

Thank you Dave! Such words from a master scratchbuilder like you are really encouraging!
Today, hit by a anger excess, I have tried to detach the wrong HACS! Very bad chosen, it seems that I used a sort of alien glue for them, not yet tested on earth, I was destroying all! I'm start thinking that I will live with them .... :censored_2:

...anyway...

SHOW THE FLAG!

Stern catwalk, I know that the handrail pattern isn't correct but it was made with the closest PE net in my hands...

Main bridge small fittings.

Cable reels and life buoy.

Hello!
Eventually I'm going to see the finish of this model, the rigging is almost done, and the boats are ready to be paint. The admiral barge was scratchbuilt and casted in resin, the 30ft GIGs have been scratchbuilt too.

Stunning work and at that scale! I'm curious to see overall shots of this one in the gallery (or on the board of course). What's your next project? :big_grin:
