      Moving right along. The sail lower deck rail is now on it. I used some fine wire to secure the upper rail to the lower rail for soldering.

        Following with interest. I have a SS 1/48 type IX hull that will get attention, someday, always nice to get motivation.

          Today I got the resin printed guns and other detail parts from David who I am building this for. I also got the ladders made. It's progressing nicely.

            I hope you'll keep the documentation up once it gets to the nasty bits: connecting the rudder, props and elevons

            Those are the parts I always struggle the most with.

              Very nice. What is the story on the destroyer? Lindberg or SB?

                Someone needs to bring a printer to the Subfest in September and give us clueless folks a lesson.

                  It is a Bancroft 1/72nd Fletcher class. I got it from Motion RC

                    I got the deck detail added. This extra kit that David got for it was a good decision.

                      Another update. Tonight I got the handrail added that goes around the sail. Aside from a couple small bits the brass work is mostly done.

                          Thank you sir.

                          Latest progress.

                          I continue to work on detailing the sail. David has been resin printing additional parts and making improvements to existing ones. I just completed adding lights. They are super micro LED's so I was able to keep them from being too bulky and actually look like they should.
