             Bit more progress folks, not much to say really, the bridge area was a pig,
I think the bloke who designed the plastic wasn't on speaking terms with the
bloke that designed the brass, some of it was out by a country mile so this is my
best effort, fortunately, because of the colour, most of it is disguised.

Bad luck to say "pigs" we had to call 'em "grunters".

Still thinking about the rigging, just found this.
It must be an early picture, look at the A/C on the catapult.

Very impressive work here Mr. Haddock. By 1941 wouldn't she have been carrying a Walrus rather than the Fairey III/Seafox shown in the picture?

Seafoxes were in service until 1943 so it depends on the time frame for the model. Another great model.

There's a Walrus supplied in the kit.
The picture was just to show some rigging which could have changed by the 1940's

You know that it is always a minefield, refits, work at sea and so on. Best guess usually works. If It Looks Right It, Probably is.
