I had almost forgotten about this build so time to share this build log.
It comes with a bucket full of PE and most of the pictures are what's been done and the squares you see are one centimetre square to give an idea of what I am dealing with.
Oh and there are only 1300 parts.P1040705.JPGP1040707.JPGP1040711.JPGP1040708.JPGP1040717.JPGP1040716.JPGP1040718.JPGP1040724.JPGP1040725.JPGP1040726.JPG20190514_192431.jpg20190514_195242.jpg

Awesome. I don't know what to say as I will display my complete ignorance. But, here it goes. So, this funnel is all one color. Is there not any differentiation (shades) of grays or is all of this structure one color gray (like the ladder, and other PE components) ? It seems that the tiny parts would have some contrast to them to make them stand out more. It is obvious that I am not educated on this ERA of ships. (and I need to be). I guess the only way to make some parts to stand out is to weather them. (more ignorance :confused: )

Looking very nice. Will be following your log as I am working on USS Kidd off the Trumpeter The Sullivans in 1/350. Great work on the stack.
The Fletcher class looks like a good choice for the 1/144 scale.
Cheers, Harley
