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.

Just sorting out my model room ( it has to be done every 15 years even if it doesn't needs it - hohoho) and recycling some models such as the Zulu figures  to go into another model and others for storage and remembered I never posted pictures of the finished model of the "Iron Felix" so this is it and now she is off to the scrapyard.

Oh No,
I know that feeling all too well.
Mine though are the non-finished ones.
Hopefully the ghost of the Iron Felix/Graf Zeppelin might re-appear sometime in the future, in happier times.
Cheers,
