Been tuning up the hull here and there with some burnishing and gave it a coat of Krylon Matt these vessels were not shiny although they were a spit and polish navy. As of now I am constructing the Turrets the only beef with the kit is the parts numbers they employed as directions to many lines of the representation of the parts gets you crossed eyed if you stare to long. The fit of parts are excellent no fit issues at all I love these Orel kits I ordered 6 more of these kits on ebay I am so delighted. Okay here are the update pictures more to come stay posted

Barbets and superstructure assembly

Ahoy Paperwrights

Okay we are moving along swiftly all of the four 8 inch Barbets are assembled and in place proceding to the superstructure sides the fit of the kit is excellent a very complex model to build as I am constructing the kit I am tuning up the hull as I go all of the casement guns are assembled with no fuss watch out for them when constructing the models drill out the holes on the casement shutters and install your casement guns this will assure that they wont break off. more pictures will be coming A kit you can not leave your hands off of,

Side Superstructure And Boiler Casings

Ahoy
Another update here starting the side superstructures and boiler casings also tuning up the hull here and there still needs polishing here and there. These Orel kits from Ukraine are tops they go together very well the best feature in their kits is the over engineered hull framing, to me it I cant see it the framing of the hull gives you a warp free hull everything lines up well in the assembly A word of caution for better handling don't install the casement guns they will break off save them for last, Letting the unit dry for the night return tomorrow and button up the forward end of the side superstructure and the aft will be connected last the 5 inch 25s will have to be added aft at the casement. stay posted more pictures tomorrow.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019

Spar Deck and Funnels

Ahoy
Here is another update the good stuff comes easy now been turning to on the funnels and boiler casings. A lot to do on this thing these pre dreadnaughts have a lot of gear on them to work old style marlin and seamanship and the begging of the modern steel navy. These Orel kits are the Bee,s Knees there are no fit issues on this kit anyone wanting to try their hands on this type of vessel be prepared there are a lot of small parts and takes patience very challenging to say the least Being retired now I can devote more time on this if everything goes well on the build I should have this done in two to three weeks I been on it now for two weeks no a foot race kit to build. Stay posted more to come,

Looks like quick progress.
I spotted another pre-dreadnought in the background of image 3765.
Which ship is it?

Thanks Mike been on this for two weeks working 7 to 9 hours a day always going back correcting things that I missed. This kit has over 3,000 parts thus far I have almost 400 parts. Any information on golden bears kits he done 7 years ago or more love to get ahold of him and purchase some of them. The vessel in the back ground is the USS MAINE 1898 Scratch built thanks for your reply I love your builds you done on the past top shelf builds.

Funnels and Casement Guns

Ahoy
Here is another update been at this for 7 hours todat tuning up and cleaning up holidays I forgot to polish up on, all of the funnels have been installed the stacks are not glued on they are there for scale of the ship looks like the Brooklyn now. Truly a great kit this kit is overloaded with small parts some I cant use and will never be missed the most difficult part of this kit is not the construction its the numbered boxed parts with the lines going to where the parts are glued on to it gets confusing you be seeing double vision use magnifiers for this purpose. more pix coming up

Fitting out the Spar Deck

Ahoy

Another update for the Day Having a ball with the kit everything goes together very well without fuss no fit issues at all during construction of this kit Orel has my stamp of approval. again the stacks are not glued down just for scale and over al views. I am very satisfied with this kit and will buy more Orel kits I already ordered 7 more kits from these people they are very kind along with your kit you receive hard tac candy all away from Ukraine. Next the forward superstructure and mast will be assembled this will be done when I finish up the details on the spar deck. thanks guys for your views and comments

HAPPY NEW YEARS
