USS Syren by Hipexec - Model Shipways - 1:64 - building as USS Argus


Recommended Posts

I finished the rudder chains and because the Argus has superstructures in the stern and pictures I have of an old model of the Argus makes me believe that the chains run through the hull into the superstructures just like on the USS Constitution where they run through the hull into the gun room for emergency steering.

I just rummaged through my kit and Syren plans and can not find anything to make a ship's stand? Am I missing something?  :default_wallbash::default_wallbash::dancetl6:

 

There was nothing that came with the kit to make a stand.

 

I've been debating  whether to get a pair of brass pedestals and mount to a board or make my own cradle out of wood.

I'll make my own out of wood. It's hard to believe they did not provide for a stand? :dancetl6:

The cradles and base are finally set so the ship sits firmly on the stand. Next I will pin but not glue the cradles. Then I will sand and varnish all pieces. Then permanently glue everything together. By the way where that big knot is I will place a brass plaque with the ship's name
