Hull Portholes/Scuttles- The general placement of portholes/scuttles are close. There are several on the port side of the hull that are slightly out of position though. These are illustrated on the following two images, both courtesy of Maarten Schönfeld of Belgium: Port Bow & Port Stern. Note- the white spots are the filled-in portholes and arrows indicate the corrected locations. There is one error on the starboard side as well- there is a single porthole below the bitts and abreast the capstans needs to be filled-in with putty.
Hawse Pipes- There are four of these on the kit...three on the bow and one at the end of the stern. Trumpeter only moulded the raised lips/outer edges. These should be drilled out and connected to the hawsepipe holes in the focsle deck (which also need to be drilled out). The only potential difficulty here is in getting the holes to line up properly and in modeling the pipe that connects them. At this scale, such a feature is quite noticeable.
Some readers have written to us with suggestions for accomplishing this- the consensus seems to fill this section of the bow with plastic, putty, resin or something of this nature. Once curbe to place either putty or resin in the bow allowing it to harden. Afterwards, drill out the pipes, taking great care to align the side and deck openings. Careful sanding combined with deck grates and full anchors will help hide imperfections should there be any. Remember that if you do drill out the hawsepipes, you will also have to build anchors with sheet /tube styrene or purchase them as aftermarket parts.
pozeram ze postupujes rychlo
nechapem to prerusenie kabla.Ako ho tam potom dorobis??
This single cable ran aft outside the enclosed focsle deck until reaching the point somewhere aft of the quarterdeck break. The exact point is currently unclear, but it would appear to be abreast "X" turret. From here, two cables were used to encircle the stern.
