That's the thing with scratch building no ones done ot before so you have to work it all out yourself. On to your next challenge mate
KEN yes this is my nxt challenge an im lookin forward to it i'll just sit in my comfy chair in my model room an just stare at the bridge plans eg. side view an top view an front view an then sleep on it as most of my ideas come from dreamin them up normally when I wake up in the morn its eureaka ive got It I cry in bed an my missus says well I hope it aint catchin lol

Wow Chris! You’ve certainly made a lot of progress. HMS Tiger is really beginning to take shape. The ship really is starting to emerge from all that wood, fibreglass and epic wiring! Love the thought you’ve put into the usability of the finished model with the removable modules.

Truly stunning work
Cheers

I would think the connectors would align & tension would be tight enough to hold the modules together? Great work BTW. PaulE

HI Paul yes she comin into shape an ive made progress on her as if poss im workin on her every day at least 2 hrs worth of work an tryin to make all these modules as you call them removeable ( very good name ) makes it harder to make them removeable than just gluein them but that all the challenges to me an I love doin this kind of work ive had people ask me to build models for them but I wont do it as it would then be like work but I do this for enjoyment so no way thanks for lookin in

HI PaulE the connectors would align & tension all being well but wheather they will be strong enough to hold the modules togeather is another thing as rememeber out on the pond the winds can be quite strong an tiger S/S is quite big an flat so a wind trap so i'll have to make them fit really tightly an see how it goes thanks for your intrest
