Fomby, I like that! Covers it well, I think.

Another interesting aspect about building this, is that it is really asymmetrical. When studying many kits beforehand, it's usually obvious quickly where the different parts go. Not here!

So here is some progress on the topsides - some of the processing units, exhausts and riser balcony.

Ideas for piping Marco.....

Spaghetti? Will it get eaten if it is painted?

Polystyrene strip - like the old sprue from models. This will work. Any cross-section shaped strip will do.

Hold one end of a piece and then swivel it over a naked flame until the one end droops. Then remove and pull to extrude the plastic and hold until it solidifies.

You can get nice rounded sections like this.

You can use any old polystyrene strip for this! And there must be polystyrene strip in Ghana being used for something!

All good ideas from Kevin. Mechanical pencil leads will also work for short lengths of pipe, but are fragile.

Meanwhile, the images of your model are a feast for the eyes. You really can learn a lot bout how ships are put together from watching a model under construction. I can conceptualize the ship construction this way better than I can from drawings or photographs of the actual ship (although I enjoy looking at those, too).

Question: What are the scoop-shaped objects protruding over the starboard quarter in the eighth image (next to the big winch)?

Piping - another idea - drinking straws, if these are the right size?

Thanks - for the exhausts I have now used bamboo food skewers, they are pretty easy to process.
Don: those objects are anchoring points. This vessel is moored in place with 12 anchors.

Aha! Now that you have identified them, the purpose seems obvious, but I would never have figured that out.

Food skewers and wire of various sizes are the most useful of non-paper elements for paper modelling.

Marco, is there a lot of touch up painting involved?

The (bow offloading pipeline?) spool looks very realistic. I am always impressed with the precision of your work.
