Note the motors are upside down I used this method because of the narrow hull at the keel.

The Ratings for the Veralum is wearing No 8 Action Dress the officers are wearing No 14 Action Dress, both are identical based on a similar rig used by the US Navy it was issued to the Pacific and Eastern Fleets. It was intended to be proof against Malaria. The ship left the UK in February 1945 so it ws likely that this dress was issue to the Veralum to be used a the Commanding Oficers discretion. This dress must have been successful as it was use with minor changes up to 2015.

Cable reels, I used fine lead wire to simulate the cables I used this wire at one time to tie Trout Flies but due to enviromental concerns using lead is no longer acceptable.

Thanks Ron  I like to put as much detail as possible into the ships I build this will be of help to any future modeller as a picture paints a thousand words. I hope to complete by late December early January. My next planned build for 2022 will be HMS Manxman.
