I think the PE looks amazing. At 1/350 it does make a difference.

Hi all loads still to add to this part, slow going but I do feel I'm getting there









I will admit due to my abysmally poor modelling skills I've missed some pe out, as a bit of fun can you spot out the bits I've missed out.

I think PE is pretty much beyond my ability now so I can't see me buying any more.

The PE details that you have added to the ship's boats makes them look 1000% better than the kit bits.  I had to go back and look at the topic title to make sure this was not a larger scale kit than the actual 1:350th scale.  The wood deck sections also make this a very attractive model.  Bravo Zulu! :)

Blame it on the bifocals then.  :)

HELL NO! :o

Hold your wooden deck painting skill set high to inspire mere mortals & guide them to the light of self-painted decks, rather than the dark arts of wooden deck decals! :icon_meditation: :icon_alabanza:

Hi all here is the next update,
This sub assy is finished (well as much as I'm prepared to do) I like the unpainted brass standing out against the weathered painted parts, i just wish I had the skills to use all the PE (although to be honest I don't think you would notice the bits I've left out)

Hi all here is the crane from the kit.



And here it is after the PE











Does anyone know did these cranes have windows in the top (I mean I don't think they stood out on those railings to hoist the ships boats on board) I can't find photos of the cranes details, I would think it would be a fairly simple job to add them if they were there.

Here is the next sub assy I'm going to attack





The eduard PE comes with PE Oerlikons but I like the kit ones



One of the reasons is the barrels on the kit parts are round also the PE parts are too thin.

I'm adding some of the PE to the kit Oerlikons to make them more realistic (I could add more PE to it but it's sooooooooooooooooo˛oo small I've left it off)( of course a lot of modellers would be able to add it but I don't have the skills)

A hint for when PE is too flat for the object being represented, paint the offending bit (usually after folding and assembling) with some PVA (white) glue. Just a titch. It will tend to round out the flat PE providing a much better 3D effect. Especially in this scale.

That's a fantastic tip! Will keep that in mind the next time I have to deal with photo-etch.
