Bin auch gerne dabei, aber den Mindestabstand kannst Du vergessen. Da erkenne ich nichts mehr.

A few days off and bad weather lead to some progress on this project. Pontos set misses some details and the resin parts are generally excellent. A few show more flash and other minor defects. But still a vast improvement over the kit parts.

I managed to complete all the Armored Box Launchers and the Harpoon Launchers. I even put all my courage together and started the opened launcher from the Infini set. 83 PE parts, 5 turned brass parts, some plastic sheet an 6 hours was all it took to build an amazing tiny detail for New Jersey.
@Joerg: Herzlich Willkommen

The smokestack work in photo 10 looks really nice I think. Fun to see others drilling out the holes in pipes and stuff. :)

How can you not drill out all the pipes. That would be really insane ;)

Today it was time to finish the four Phalanx CIWS. The detail on the Pontos parts is absolutely breathtaking. A was with black oil and afterwards a careful dry brush with light grey and white is all that was needed.

Today I managed to complete all the 5 inch guns. The detail on the Pontos parts is superb! Only thing I had to change where the gun mantlets (not sure if that is what it's called for naval guns), as the Pontos parts are way to small.

Finally some progress to show. I used the old Tamiya kit to replicate the SH-3 Sea King seen on board New Jersey in 1983. I added struts to the wheel sponsons an the fin on the tail boom. The MAD probe on the starboard sponson was made from styrene rod. The tail rotor is made from thin styrene strips. The main rotor came from my own Elegoo Mars SLA printer. The Tamiya rotors look more like bricks...
Most of the markings are hand painted to match the exact Sea King shown in a series of pictures from 1983.
