  1. Hi all, we have updated the Pack 6 instructions. Particularly, Stage 53 has been amended. So if you downloaded the instructions prior to today (6 Oct 21) please re-download them.
  2. The end of the Pack - the half way stage!!! After putting the next part of the hull on, I then put everything I have built so far stacked together...WOW! And here is a short video: https://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.instagram.com%2Freel%2FCTzfubgoKBD%2F%3Futm_medium%3Dshare_sheet&data=04|01||4871625d435a4ed0243508d97791db4a|84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa|1|0|637672290603838657|Unknown|TWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D|1000&sdata=Y41lnVltNnTp42c7qptU
  3. The next 15 cm gun. This gun is similar to the previous two except that it also has a range finder installed to the turret. The mechanics under the deck follow the same principle as the others, with a switch to reverse the direction (other wise it would just spin round and round! now the deck is starting to look pretty fearsome!
  4. Two more searchlights I will skip through the build of these two, as I have made identical searchlights in the previous stages Before attaching the searchlight platform I glued on the small funnel extension Threading the searchlights cable through the funnel is easy enough. I found it helpful to pull the wire from the bas of the funnel to feed them all the way so that the searchlight platform can then be glued onto the funnel. When I put the first of the hoods, I only glued the bottom of the part where it attaches to the platfor
  5. Pushin' in those turret housings - quick an easy stage this one!
  6. Adding the second gun motor and making two searchlights The motor from stage 61 is connected in the same way as the previous one, and the finished mechanics look like this: The top of the funnel comes in three parts, which once assembled I then glued to the funnel itself: The two searchlights are identical and similar to the one made many packs ago, so once I got into the swing of things they are quite quick to assemble The finished platform was then slid around the funnel and a dab of glue keeps it all secure. Make sure that the
  7. the next 15 cm gun and sorting out the problem platforms Once you have done one 15 cm gun turret, the next few are a doddle! But now back to the two platforms. Here is the second one built, and then when I tried to attach it to the ship I realised the first one was To recap from the previous stage, the image on the left below is how I ended the stage as you can now tell, the platform has the triangular horizontal part pointing 'inwards' to the ship, when in fact it should have been pointing outward. This became evidently clear with the second pl
  8. Im combining these two stages as they are two bits of hull with some more metal detail The antenna fits easily into the roof of the radar. Then the next part rests over the railings, they don't say what this part is but looks like some sort of receiver/antenna to me. Well, I did the next bit of detailing, bending it in place and then glueing it against the structure,. I will show you a photo of what it looked like, but I then found in the next stage I had built/fitted it incorrectly, I guess I must have bent the railings down instead of up. Not v
  9. Adding the motor to the 15 cm gun turret Nice straightforward stage this one. Simply put the motor in place and screw over the housing that holds it in place Looking good!
  10. Range finders and he first 15cm gun On the deck I added the two rangefinders first and then six search light directors in the remaining holes, you need to look quite closely to the instruction photo to check which way round all o these go as they can be inserted facing either way.: This Pack is the first time I have struggled a little with bending the laser cut metal detailing (in this stage and then in stage 60). The difficulty was bending the really tiny tabs by 90 degrees. On looking further ahead, these are all little pegs simply to go into a hole on the
  11. The final stage of this pack is a rather large piece of bottom hull. ...which gives me the opportunity to try an arty photo of the hull so far, fading into the distance....:

  13. Completing the second gun and turret.. Before putting it all together, firstly I added the two barbettes to deck: and then the two range finder hoods and the two metal ladderson either side and of the gun housing As mentioned in Stage 51 diary I put the red wire on the wrong way up, you can see in this next image that the wire is too far inside the based has to bend back to get out of the circular base, this caused some jamming in the movement of the guns, The solution was to disassemble everything and turn the circuit board and wires 180 d
