Yes. Your so right Lode. :)
Each PE assembly can be called a 'Kit within a kit' add infinitum.
The most time consuming part of any project, no matter how proficient one becomes at the PE side of this hobby.
This is why Lode has got the reputation he has.
Big salute to those who get it right every time.

Beautiful as always. I recently bought a 1/700 Fletcher-class Destroyer from Tamiya and had a moment where I considered getting a PE/resin upgrade set... "Lode makes it look so easy!" ;)

Give in to it Greg.... I'm also busy learning to deal with these railings and supersmall details...

Kerry, you make me a bit shy with your most kind comment, and yet with a smile from one ear to the other. Thank you, my friend.

Greg, it looks only easy. Some parts are simple, other complex. Sometimes it fits like a glove, sometimes sweat and curses. But I don't need to convince you that what looks simple, it is often the fruit of many attempts. And sometimes, it is easy ;)

Bart, if they are supersmall, just need just Stronger magnifier glasses :)

Not for the moment yet. I've tried working with these and can't get used to it. So my still trusty eyeball is still up for the job, aided by some clear lights...

I love the angled on bow and stern shots.... really shows off the lines of this beauty quite well. Also, a great start I see on the rigging.

Bart, keep those eyes.
James, thanks for liking my friend. On the other hand, it only appears a great start on the rigging. I had to deal with a lot of issues of parts coming off

where is the waterline ;)
12. June, 11:31
kidding of course, it is looking great. I really like how the camo is looking.

Very sharp looking work Lode and great job on the camouflage. Looks like your about ready for the fun part... Friul track assembly! ;)

Spanjaard, though it is a landbattleship, this one hasn't a waterline (yet?) The camo is a researched one, and freehand brushed. Particular camo that I didn't see a lot in builds, reason why I chose this one

James, thank you my friend for liking my tank work. You're a specialist. Friul track assembly...well that is new to me, but the kit is in the stash. Fortunately, we've someone in our club familiar with tracks. Well, I bought them with the help of Martin at a fair good price, so I had no choice ;)

They are very easy to assemble and is also a somewhat therapeutic process I find.
Don't get hung up on the overall numbers or the repetitive nature and just go with the flow and they should fall together in no time. Happy to help if you want any assembly tips.

Lode Schildermans
I surely can use your tips & tricks. Repetitive work doesn't scare me off. I've experience with that. I'll come back to you when I start that process, James. But first finish my little ship. There will be some nice photos of the bow section by the end of next week

Tyger, tyger, burning bright... ;)

Looking good with all that Zimmerit coat - very interesting camo pattern too... looking forward to any torture and martyrdom you deem it worthy in the weathering phase!

Make a diorama where it wades through a small river: instant battleship!
I'd say we can turn you into a real all-round master modeller yet Lode. You apply the same standard to your tank as to your ships

Lode Schildermans
Thank you Slavo ;)
Martin, I'll stick to ships. Much easier than a tank. However, I like your idea of a diorama

Looking great. Can't wait to see it fording the river ;)
