As I have plenty on the go I plumped for this one too share.
This is not quite the full build as I had a completed ship that needed a new hull building so this build includes the hull build and transfer and refurbishment of existing parts.
The first five pics show the building of the new hull and partial planking.
And excuse the poor quality of the last picture.7939179392793937939479395

Time to bring the build up to date this time I will have done the gratings over the first and second class domes.
The original instructions had them made from wood I wasn't satisfied with the finish so tried some flat plastic card still not satisfied so finally I went back to the original instructions but changed the 1mm wood for plastic.
And also I have started on the bridge.809868098780988809898099080991

While waiting for a spitfire to dry I picked up the two ships and started transfering some parts over from the doner ship it's just mainly vents and cranes and some parts on the fore deck along with the cranes from the stern.
I am not bothered about the state of the decks as they will be varnished.
I did get some figures for the ship but 1\200 scale they are a tad bit big so some amputation will be required.20190416_153234.jpg20190416_153208.jpg20190416_153218.jpg20190416_163956.jpg20190416_153302.jpg20190416_161850.jpg
