Whilst finishing up my Operation Frankton dio., I have starting on an old 1/125 Revell boat kit that I wanted to do as the 'Wolf' from the Greyhound film....

Step 1 was building 3 main bulkheads with hatches - then I made a start on the forward torpedo room....added some wiring and pipe work
Central battery compartment and control room next....I saw some diagrams of the Mk VII boats that had coloured the various compartments. I coped that rather then full white everywhere...

Looking good Morris :clap:

I hope you find your missing ladder. I too have that problem of things pining out from the tweezers. I have seen somewhere that if you coat the tip of your tweezers with some rubber glue, it will grip the items better. I've not tried it my self. However I personally wouldn't try it with your best tweezers

This morning, I made and printed my own decals for the conning tower and display stand. I cut a parentheses off but will add it separately :? - will start the weathering before adding the decals and small bits such as railings, deck guns and rudders,props....
