Peter really like this, one of the things I always struggle with is gluing tiny etch parts and getting it to look tidy. Photo 3 is incredible.

In photo 15, are those two potato lockers? 🙂

Sweet scratch building of the open hangar! 🙂

Thanks for the feedback. I also struggle with gluing tiny parts Mark, it feels like each one required at least three attempts ?. Treehugger, if you are talking about the things on the right hand side of photo 15, these are flag lockers for signalling flags.

Yes I struggle with these small parts as well and I try and steer clear of CA wherever possible as there are alternatives

I'm watching this build with great interest, as I am hoping to make the jump from aircraft to ships in the near future. It wont be anything as ambitious as this but this build is giving me a lot of ideas. The level of detail and ingenuity with the scratch building is impressive.👍

So for the lit port holes, do you have to melt the tip of the fiber optic strand, or can you just glue it in place with cyanoacrylate?
27. October, 10:43
Barry Assheton-Smith
No don't melt them. I drilled a hole just big enough for the fibre optic strand to go through making sure I left a small length sticking out, I then applied a small amount of CA Glue to the fibre optic strand on the inside of the model. Careful not to add too much as it can melt through the fibre optic (happened to me a couple of time). Once the model is painted and varnished I used a scalpel to cut the extra length from each of the fibre optic strands.
