mate seriously - that is looking sensational! I'm looking forward to seeing you do the rigging on this beast. Any ideas on what your going to use for it? I hear EZ Line is great stuff. Never used it myself but I might find some for the QM2

 

Thanks! Yep, EZ line is what I've used on the forward superstructure. I'll be using that for the rest of the rigging as well. Still lots to come!

Little more work tonight. Ladders, some rigging, Phalanx, added antenna to the forward missile deck......stuff. I was hoping the EZ line might sag a bit with heat, but no such luck so far. We will see if I keep the rigging from the main mast to the aft mast. We'll seeeeeee

Not a lot done since my last update, but a few things. I'm not too happy with the rigging and I think I need to use something different than EZ Line for the main mast to aft mast. There's no sag and it looks weird. 

Otherwise, more little parts attached, more to go through in the box. Harpoon launchers are being assembled and I started poking around on the Veteran Models Tomahawk boxes. No clue how I will drill .3mm holes for grab rails. Amusing though that the instructions call for drilling, but the image of a finished box shows the handle on top of the resin, not through. 

Comments are welcome.

More work from today. The link antenna at the bow is in progress, hoping I can run the lines on it without destroying the Eduard PE. More antennas added to the superstructure, more rigging, rudders added back (oops) and more little details going on. 

Comments/critiques are always welcome!
