Looking Good Msea,

I reckon this model will now receive all the good reports of its build with the three masts and associated radar equipment.
Sorry couldn't resist.
Another great 'What If' from the Msea Dockyard or is it modelling room??
Cheers,
Bigkev

Thank you Kevin - got your message on the radar.
All bits now fitted to the mast and the 3 mast added to the ship.  Before somebody asks the radar mats are made from garden mesh thinned down a little bit.

Thank you Haddock but it looks better in the photo than in real - that's my view. 
Its a rush conversion for the comp on Wed night, but as you know its a ship, so has NO chance of winning, but heyho its only for FUN.
