Ageneral view of the hull which measures 3260mm
I had to modify the brass portholes on my lathe, in order to cut off the flange, as German portholes had no flange on the outside of the ship side; but was always on the inside. Around 300 portholes are required for both the starboard and portside of the ship.
The porthole eyebrows, made from 0.3mm copper wire.
The brass propeller spinners, turned on the lathe. An advise for all marine modellers. German Propeller spinners have a very different streamline then that of the Bristish and Allied counterparts. They are longer and the end of the spinners resemble the shape of a rocket.
