During the past several months I have been busy getting my house ready for sale come Sep/Oct.
This doesn't mean that The Prinz has been completely ignored. So ...

Time for an update

The hangar is almost finished (moveable part of the roof still needs to be constructed) and the second level of the rear superstructure is starting to looking good

Thanks Eric and Mark for your comments. :D

Had a go at a couple of louvers last night after my post. They are made from 0.25mm styrene (which is almost see-through) and only 1mm wide.
My Lord, they are a bl**dy bitch to cut/position/align/glue without messing it all up.

Thankfully they normally look a lot better after painting ;)

The top of the level 2 superstructure is a bit too high on purpose so it can be sanded back to proper height when the next deck, about 1mm thick, is constructed (to fit on top between the walls).

The top level of the rear superstructure under construction

It is starting to getting a bit complicated with the slight differences in structure/colour of the timber decks with another type added.
Until now 3 different types of timber decks, but so far so good.

Hello again,

After 7 months off working on my house (it really needed it) I am now back into modelling mode and continuing on the rear superstructure.
It took a while to figure out how to construct the signals platform (holding the main mast) that sits above the hangar, but I think I cracked it.

Here is a pic of the rear superstructure (at present) loosely dry-fitted

Been a busy month since my last post - and the front superstructure is now growing.
Three points need to be absolutely aligned:
the 2 large rangefinders at the back (with domes and not shown) and the front wall, which goes all the way up the three levels. The front wall and the swing-out bridges will be next before starting on the tower itself.
Here are some dry-fitted pics of the progress. The structure looks a bit clumsy on the pics, but the reason is the masking tape between the levels and over some of the planked decks. It will look much nicer with the masking tape removed.
