The upper deck buildings were also plastic, either laminated or (as stated earlier) the GW oil drums or - in the case of the main mast - wood (a tapered cocktail stick).

Test fitting the turret
Test fitting the deck structures

These were first test-fitted and then superglued into place on the hull.

Adding more of the parts

The twin funnels are plastic tube, which are cut to size and glued with a small plastic rod pin onto the rear deck building.

The two half-round gun platforms are GW Leman Russ wheels, cut in half and glued to either side of the same deck housing.

Adding more details

At this early stage, I was impressed by how quickly the model was progressing, and I had started to add 'detailing' such as portholes, doors and rivets made from plastic rod of different section. The doors and windows are from thin plasticard, as is the rear locker.
