Prototyping of the central superstructure - first iteration (paper). A height of the standard director platform seems to be not enough. Another half of a meter will be needed. Oerlikon nests used raising tubes, because these guns intended to engage surface targets. Maybe i can add safely another 30 cm width each side to ensure a little more space for the loader to operate easily. Now ammo storage rack is single, for both guns, maybe i can enlarge the ammo rack platform to the funnel side and add there one or two more ammo boxes.
Any suggestions and corrections are welcome!

Excuse me for the long delay!
The work continues, but not too much things worthy of a photo.
The hull is complete, now prepations for the painting goes on. Too much sanding these days. :)
Some other details are ready for 3D-printing, I will order them soon. You can see the bridge and mix of some tiny details - loudspeakers, deck lamps, handrail knobs and two types of rope craddles. More will be ready soon.

A new update: Central superstructure is successfully printed. I received the parts today. I need to apply primer for better visibility of the details. The main mast is paper prototype too and will be replaced. The Huff-Duff and Porker will be transferred to the secondary mast, to free the main mast for the bigger AWS-1 radar. I'm close to start a hull painting, I just need to finish the bow deck edges.

Thank You very much! The hull painting is very close, so I hope I can show even better photos soon!
But, I have a question, please!
On the original Type 14 frigates, there are a small platforms each side of the funnel. They were used to hold a large number, indicating a squadron to which the ship contains. I can't find indication that similar practice existed in the Danish fleet. I have following options:
1. To remove the platforms at all.
2. To attach the squadron number anyway.
3. To preserve them, but attach nothing.
4. To attach a shield (or square/rectangle/disk) with Danish colors.

I think it will be better to stick with option 4 or 3.
But, what is Your opinion, which will be correct?
I also found photos, where a disk with a hand is attached there. Maybe I need to add something different on this place?
Best Regards!

Hallo again my friend.

The RDN often uses different signs on the funnels. It could be the NATO sign and others, when attached to a NATO group (Minesweepers, Standing Naval Frigate Groups Northern Waters) , which happens all the times.

But The RDN donĀ“t uses signs for the RDN Flotilla they belongs to.

Looking very much forward to even more photos ::DD

Very best regards
