I'm adding details to fill all that empty desk space on this model. The real ships had very crowded decks, I need to capture some of that feel. So far I have made Carley Floats, lifeboats and searchlights. link

You can probably do vent tubes using brass tube and a pipe bender.

I scratchbuilt the gun mounts, just for something to do while I waited for them to be delivered.
