yeah, tried that too but it keeps cracking. Even when I heat the sheet up in hot water.

One possibility may be to try using a section from a plastic bottle.

Hi
 Try holding a steel rule hard down edge on to the plastic and pulling the plastic  from under the rule, as you do it each time it will curl a bit try a few tine and you will have a permanent curve in the plastic as you are heating up the inside with friction.
hope it helps

Been a while since I made a post, but here I go.

I am still working on the bridge superstructure. Adding the parts together and adding some detailing. Also I have the rangefinder together. The DC tower is still a project that will need 3D printing. allready made the file, just need it to be printed, but I will most likely also 3D print the crowsnest, so any close up pictures of that are more then welcome!!!.

In detail a trial fitting of the rangefinder and a close up on the internal detailing so far done to the bridge.

Thanks.

I've been looking to the instructions for the aft superstructure now also, and it appears that they are practically inexistant compared to the forward superstructure instructions. Wich is sad because in my opinion the aft superstructure is more complicated.

Thanks Ron, but are you sure that is the HMS Cossack kit in the pictures? Because I don't see space in the back for and a gun mount and dept charges rack.
