The measurements for the lamp

A bench was also made with styrene


Also a step made with anti-slip PH piece

Now I moved to the top of the map room, here the shield extension was remade to the correct shape for the Han-Ju
Here a comparison of the original and the new one

It looks like this now, the helmet holders are glued in place at this time


Again using styrene rod I made this parts that I’m not 100% sure if they are holders for flags or what.
This is on the photos of the Han-Ju so I add it to my model


Here are the measurements

Here you can see it in its place atop the map room

The antenna cable holders masts are installed also

This parts that came with the kit I just found out not long ago are supposed to be
Gas houses to refill the boat at port. By the shape of it you could never guess
What they are. So using a piece of 2.5mm by 102mm long solder wire I started to
Roll it with .020” solder wire to make it look like a flexible rubber house


Now it looks like this

The house connections are made with styrene disks, a piece of sprue and other parts.
First the valve body is made with a piece of sprue cut to a valve body shape

Here is the finished valve and the parts used to create it, you need two of it one for each house.


Glued to the house

The other end uses the same parts only without the valve

Glued in place

A comparison of the original houses and the new ones

The bolts detail are pieces of .020 styrene rod


Well that’s all for now, as you can see lots of scratch building that is slowing my
Progress down, but these little details are what bring the model to life.

Merry Christmas to all and see you soon!!

Firstly great work mate i have followed this thread for a while now and love the progress. I have two questions about the Archers set you used for the rivets. How many packets did you use on this model? as im sure there is only one sheet of rivets in the packaging ( happy to be proven wrong though) and did you cut the rivets off the backing sheet individually and apply them one by one to get the look you have?..... again great work mate i look forward to more of the build

pvk308 thanks! I do have two sets as it only contains one sheet each, if you plan to put rivets on the back and top of the map room you need two and maybe 3, only problem is its expensive! I try to use strips with as many rivets I can for long lines and if any gaps needs one or two then I cut it individually its agreat product, just keep it in a zip bag so humidity wont damage it.
