The joys of modelling, still a challenge for you.
As we have discussed before, you would think that someone would have built the kit before going into production to iron out any problems, the same with any etched brass.
Do they just assume that because modern CAD systems are so good it will be right?
This sort of ship/davit problem seems to crop up many times so I've done it before, just not said 'owt.
As for CAD, it's only as good as the bloke pressing the keys.

Bit more bent brass, there's four like this (two each hand actually)

Your folded brass is incredible Tony.  The detail is fantastic.

Now touch up all those brassy bits - just so you don't get too pleased with yourself.

Looks like another Class winning model Maestro...
... assuming we actually get to another model show at some point in the distant future that is!

I'm with Zak -- photos are a pain in the b**  - they show every little bit of missing paint on the rails -- but even with that its excellent Haddock another masterpiece.

Time to think about adding rails to the main and lower weather decks.
Drawings first so you can see what we're faced with.
Trumpeter have supplied six lengths of railing, three each side, all identical at 124m long with 4mm between stanchions.
The model is 365mm long measured at deck level on the centreline, so around the hull will be more. 3x124=372 so not much to spare.
On the drawings, the parts are labelled PE-A1, to bend them as shown on the drawings is a mathematical impossibility, the midship section just ain't long enough for a start.
Just as an aside, on all the pictures I've looked at, with the ship under way, the ladders with handrails are only there from the quarter-deck to the lower quarter-deck so I've followed suit.
I scratched my head for a while then thought " stop moaning and get on with it, ignore all the silly little kinks around the midship section and hope for the best"
You can see the result on the port-side main deck.
I've got a piece of brass left about 6mm long, so just enough.
Haddock.

There's as much time goes into the research as the build I think.  Well worth it though and a lot more difficult than aircraft I suppose as there were less of each type and as they became "unavailable" they were a lot less "accessible" being at the bottom of the ocean rather than wheels up in a ploughed field.
