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

For the past many weeks, I have been working on the rear/main mast
A bit of a puzzle, but after numerous repairs :superlglue: because of the flimsy parts that kept breaking, and breaking off :angry-banghead: it has finally been finished.

I really do worry when the time comes to add the rigging. A lot of rigging has to be attached to these delicate parts.

Moved on to the cubicles for the target equipment on the bridge.
Here is what they looked like on the ship

I just wish they had opted for more square-ish shapes - it would have saved me days of work :(

Most inconsiderate of the ship builders :lol:

I’m impressed that you can work out what shape they are from that photo! I guess you must have other references, but it looks very good to me.

Hi Mark,
Yes, I also have the book: "3D - The heavy Cruiser Prinz Eugen" by Waldemar Goralski from Kagero plus everything else of interest that I can download from the internet.
From all that combined I have made my own drawings (side view, top view and many of the details).
The side view and top view will of course be made available on this website when my model - and thereby the drawings - is finished.
Cheers .... Poul
