Hi my friends, I’m back in business as the cast in my left arm is finally gone. Now I can move on with the build. In the last couple of week I received the rest of detail parts for the boat, deep charges, rivets from archer, guns from master, MGs 15 from CMK and 20mm and 3.7 mm shells
From RB

Guns and machine guns + ammo

The machine guns MG15 for the bridge sides

And the flak guns

Interesting resin rivets from archer in decal paper. Trim to size and apply like decals…

And the resin depth charges set from Cammett


Continuing with the twin 20 mm guns, I assembled the barrels, excellent detail on it


And installed it

I constructed the firing handle with bits from the parts box and styrene

Glued it in place, then I found looking at pictures of the gun that the harness is upside down, so I removed it, you need to cut and sand the connecting plastic and glue a piece of styrene rod on the opposite side. So now the longest part is on top



Should look like this

The twin gun is finished, the firing handle was removed and left aside till is time to fit the figure to the gun so I can position it in the hand of the figure, here is the gun finished




Some additional details on the side of the gun using spare PH parts and styrene, also the support for the sight shield was redone with a longer piece of PH carrier as it was too close to the sight
And also needed a couple of degrees of inclination



Now I’m moving to finish working on the 3.7 gun, so more coming soon
Thanks!
Abdin

If I ever built a boat this is the one I would build. KILLER Sexy.

Hi to all Again!
Work continues with the 3.7 flak, after removing all the molded details this are replaced with Eduard’s PH parts giving it a nice detail change..
With the details removed


And with the new PH details


Next the Master barrel, Excellent!


Then I moved to the shield assembly, after bending and soldering it in the corners, it was glued to the base



The PH shield hinges with styrene rod pins

I removed the shield locks from the original shield to be used in the PH one as the ones included it the Eduard set are flat, in this case the originals are better…
Using a chisel blade to carefully remove the details

Here the hinges and locks are glued in place

And the interior locks

A few missing detail added from the part box, the PH pedal is glued in place and a wire rod

Added to the mechanism

Finally the rest of details like seats, hand wheels etc are installed, here the finished gun in detail








Now I’m starting to work on the final gun the one on the front, and this one requires a major rework
With many mistakes done by italeri that need to be corrected

Thanks for looking!
