Started cleaning up the hull. And now Greg has shown some more fun drilling out all the vents.  I'm going to look at some Plano brass roof-walk materials for railroad cars as a backing to add a little detail. That website is: http://www.planomodelproducts.com/boxreef_scq.html

I thought about that, on quite a few photos there does not appear to be any metal grille behind apart from a few support struts.

 

When you zoom in they are completely black,  leading me to believe they are hollow. That being said, because of that it forces you to drill these bits out.

Does your research show the torpedo tubes offered any deflection, or was it just a straight shot or nothing?

I can see where torpedo's from a fixed launcher could be useful to scuttle a friendly ship or sink a disabled ship, but hitting a moving ship would be next to impossible it seems to me.

Will definitely be following along on this, love the pre-Dreadnaughts.  Looking at her beside the Yamato without all the extraneous deck fittings and armament in picture above shows a lot of resemblance to form U-boats and later submarines.

Good news on the PE. I'll be bugging Free Time for it, since they carry the Infini line.

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
