Thank you @paulv1958 .Awsome paint job Peter. I love the detail you are adding.
So what you are saying, the plastic kits are like the wooden kits, some are close and others are far from the truth.Thank you @paulv1958 .
Just came from a long search between kit details and what is real. Unfortunately the kit is seriously out of wack. It adds things that are not there, and leaves out what is there. Perhaps I am comparing two different versions of the same boat, but more than 50% is untrue between them. To me, that is most unlikely to happen between version-conversions. So I am really left to do my own version of things.
Also, the decals are mostly wrong. And many have an overlapping film which makes it impractical. Even if I softened the decal to wrap over obstacles, other portions of the same decal then are not aligned with other bits. I have decided to only used decals, or portions of, which I believe are more detailed than I can reproduce by hand, i.e., I will be painting most of it.
Good referral. They sure do cover a lot of possibilities.Awesome and Excellent painting details - wow. I might add the next time you do LEDs for lighting, you might consider Evans Designs as he has very nice bright LED's down to the 1mm x 1mm size and smaller. I used some of them and they already come with resistor and wiring. Just add 9V to it.
NO!Now we are realy getting a correct feeling for the scale......are your eyes still good enough to make it without magnifier ?

I am interested in your little magnifiers that are clip-ons. I wish you would post a picture of them.
All of what I can find are huge and bulky. I have only seen one pair worn by one person that is like one tiny loupe that swings up and down. I guess in the meantime, I will look on web again.
