  1. The hull was purchased some time ago (2014) from MZ modellbau, but as far I understood he closed his company (he retired) in January 2019. I figured out, that the hull and resin parts are produced in the Ukraine (ML-Modellships ) they offer a line of ships of the German imperial Navy 1/100 scale. but come mainly with resin parts, the rest of the parts you need to make by your self (depending upon the choice you make) I use the resin parts as a example or use it partly (base) to remake the part. Part of the brass I use where purchased extra with my Emden. And s
  2. Everyone thanks for the thumbs up finished the searchlights platforms, only need to make the rescue ring installation below the platform on starboard side, after that I can start with the railing.
  3. The small wheels I made from cutting very small slides from a brass tube, the bigger ones I used wheels that I still had laying around from my previous build Emden, used them for the 10,5 cm guns. Everyone thanks for the thumbs up and likes and we continue. did not make so much pictures during the process of construction and building so manly pictures of finished parts and constructions. made the railing in the back. Made a start with the rigging of the funnels, made the 3.7cm Maxim machine canons, that where placed in the fighting masts. and s
  4. Thank you all for your kind words and thumbs up. And we go a bit further Made a couple of downfalls, plus torpedo loading crane Plus made the railing for the rear gallery, also made the flagpole. Still need to make few details on the aft deck, before I can make a beginning with the rigging.
  5. Thanks for the nice words and thumbs up update Below some pictures from the progress of my model. Explains more than words.
  6. Everyone thanks for the thumbs up and we continue a bit further made the 4 8,8cm guns (combination of 3D and scratch, the 3D level of details is really amazing almost impossible to produce by hand, so I decided to make it a Combi of scratch and 3D) made the rest of the gun I’m placements made the last to sloops and made the davits plus the gearboxes for the davits installation. still need to make some more details to the davits but it gives all ready a impression.
  7. Thanks everybody for the comments and thumbs up. and we continue a little bit further made the last air intake, and added the rest of the details to the fire control that where still missing, still missing the splinter shields for the 8.8 guns. I forgot in my enthusiasm to make some pictures, during the process, sorry ! below also a picture of the compass stand, standing on my cutting board.
  8. update started to build the compass platform and the rear fire control below some picture explains more than words
  9. Eu...................................................h..................................., just plain beautiful !!
  10. Everyone thanks for the thumbs up. the chapter sloops. I finished the last one of this section and added some more details , still need to make 2 more, but I have to wait a little bit more on them, unfortunately they send me the wrong hulls, they where 13.5cm instead of the ordered 10 cm. so I will continue on the rest of the structure that still need to be constructed, like the compass platform and the fire control and mast. below some pictures of the sloops
  11. First Thank you all for your kind words and thumbs up. And we will continue a bit further with the sloops, below some pictures that I think more or less clearly show my steps , Three more sloops I have to make. Out of a total of 11 Of which 2 I ordered extra in Germany because they were not included in the kit I bought at the time ,( by the way the sloops are made out of resin, it takes some time and patience to get them as I would like to) The 2 that I extra ordered are currently on their way. So as said a number of pictures below, that will explai
