Thanks Issac and Avraham for your interest and comments.

@ Isaac - I was expecting that it will not be perfect. Looks that I will take option 1, smooth and repaint. Looking now for the best color match.

@ Avraham - This pictures take me back to the late 60's. Still have a scan of this model.

Shalom Mor

The 3 inch gun is done. With more than 25 parts (not counting the base ribs), it became a mini-project by itself. Added some filling at the top, smoothed the bonding lines and repainted.











The mast is the next step.

Very nice turret!
It is also nice to have the subject near you for a firsthand reference!
Consider using wire or metal rod/tubing, I am not going to be offended with a mix media model.

Thanks wireandpaper, Abir Merlin and rifleman. I don't mined using diferent materials, but for the mast I am using woden round toothpicks (2mm diameter) and paper because it is easy to bond them together.

Maine effort for now is the mast, it is divided to two maine parts - lower and upper. Done from 2mm and 1mm woden toothpicks build as a trust.







Pinting will be done after bonding the two parts. Dry fit to the model.
