Fantastic work on those tiny boats, as Number1 say's you must have dexterity and patience. Well done :clap: :clap:

Unbelievable work Poul. Those boats would be a work of art in a normal scale. Hard to believe they are 1/200

First, thanks for the kind words, but it is now getting harder and harder as I grow older and my hands are shaking.
Figuring out how to execute my ideas for the parts as simple as possible, with the above mentioned handicap, is now the most time consuming part of the build - apart of course from all the parts that end up in the scrap bin ;)

Second. the post I made yesterday seems to have vanished, so I'll try and recreate it:

With the construction of the wheel house, I have now (almost) finished the middle section of the tower (still the platform fence to be completed)
Here is a pic from the early Prinz with a 20 mm Vierling mounted on the gun platform (later replaced with a 40 mm Bofors)

The typhoon is made from a 3mm brass rod

(Pic of the bottom of the platforms were posted on May 17, 2017)
Cheers .... Poul
