Scharnhorst 27

Image

We start covering up the freestanding parts of the middle deck structures decks with brass from below. Again the piece is shown downside up. The brass extends beyond the wooden parts by ca a tenth of a millimeter which will provide a natural anchoring point for the railings we will be fitting soon.

Scharnhorst 28

Covered the rest of the walls and roof of the middle deck structures lower level with brass.

We've reached the 20% point in this build, so it's time to have another look at the complete ship so far.

Would be nice to see the two posed side by side as a comparison :D

That can certainly be done. I'll post a pic with the next update.

I forgot about your comparison pic. Will make one for the next update.

Scharnhorst Issue 29

Image

We get to add the railings to the middle deck structure. Luckily the brass is pretty robust, as we have to bend it to follow the outline of the deck. This is made a little bit easier by the tiny overhang of the PE already attached, but still is not exactly a walk in the park because the brass wants to return to its earlier shape. So you have to overbend a bit, but not too much. Only when the brass perfectly follows the shape of the deck, can you glue it down, otherwise internal forces will soon rip it clean off again.

For the first time the kit drops the pretense of "being easy enough anyone can build it" and the fallout is of course a lot of new builders dropping out of the build and trying to sell or even just give away their incomplete Scharnhorsts.

Ha ha ha yeah! It took several attempts to get mine right on the Bissy! Also you need to wait for the brass walls to be glued in before attaching the doors, vents etc. Or they'll just ping off when you try and bend them!! :evil: :evil: I've seen so many Bissy builds part completed coz they've got too difficult for the builders :roll:
Great work so far mate.

Tom

Yeah, I was pleasently surprised they're doing it the right way around this time. First stick in the walls, then the detail stuff.

Scharnhorst issue 30

Installed more brass on the middle decks structure to simulate netting. Also extended the areas between the curved sections with a grating and railings.

Scharnhorst 31

We're finishing up work on the middle deck structure for now by adding doors and air conditioning equipment to the walls. This is a step up from the Bismarck, where things were done the other way around. Doors were added first, then the walls were bent and the doors plinged off into oblivion.

We also get to make two rope drums.

Next time, we start planking the hull. No, really, we do.
