Treehugger For ejector pin mark holes, I like using Vallejo putty (white and fairly non toxic) by specifically filling the hold AND also creating this ice cream top shape, because the putty tend to shrink, but with a small top on the stuff, I can let it dry for some hours, and simply cut the top off with a sharp blade, and just drag a sanding stick over to clean it all up.

Rando Dude I don't intend to use putty on this project, for one because I don't have any at the moment, but also because this is just a small starter to get back into building. But I will keep your advice handy for future projects, thanks.

Cliff Jones Has anyone else got a Trumpeter copy of this kit? The cover art is the same, the parts layout is the same, the manuals are the same; only the maker's mark differs. It's not in any Trumpeter listing that I can see. Did they run afoul of Tamiya's legal eagles? In any case, I'm confident that the PE set that's meant for the Tamiya kit will work out just fine.
Christian Bruer Mate for sure you changed to 350 Do you plan to buy the Pontos Set? I have the set and can highly recomment it. A review is next on Modellmarine and if you want I can write one for FW too.

Mike McCabe Hi Christian, no I haven't changed, this was a Christmas present about eight years ago! A review would be great though as I'm sure a lot of people will be looking to dig this old kit out of the stash.

Christian Bruer Yep I will Do! Sure the kit is old but and will not fit todays molding and detail standards, but first, it represent PoW very well and the fit is extremly good.

Mike McCabe It looks a good kit still and the Pontos set should bring it into the modern age

Robert Brodie The top part of the foremast of my kit has been broken and I'm looking for a replacement. I'm not keen to buy a new kit for the sake of the foremast! Can anyone assist?

Bart Goesaert Superb job... still don't know whether I would undertake such a job... What do you use for the rigging? is that streched sprue?

Mary Lawton Yes just stretched spruce, I wanted to keep it simple nothing fancy. Even the railings are just a generic brand pulled of other old kits that are also in a big box of ready built kits. Thank Micha and Bart.
