Spent some time yesterday soldering the masts not my favourite part of building however the three masts are now complete apart from dressing the solder joints and of course painting.

Lattice mast I have found using an open flame rather than and iron makes it easier to run the solder

Finished the ships boats. One of our club members makes the ships boats from resin these are excellent models but are heavy and on slim hull destroyers any additional top weight affects stability, the real ones suffered from this aswell. So i prefer to use the ones supplies with the kit.
