Trumpeter 1/350 SS Jeremiah O'Brien
Posted by retdfeuerwehr on Monday, May 15, 2017 2:19 PM

Working on the O'Brien: ran into some minor problems with the winches - trying to hollow out the insides of the catheads, but it's very difficult because they're so fiddly. If anyone has some extra winch parts (D14,30, 22, and 30) I'd love to buy them from you. Also, GMM's PE has some turnbuckles for the kingpost shrouds, but how to utilize them escapes me...anybody have an idea for that? Speaking of PE, I'm using both the GMM and Eduard sets - quite a disparity in what's on the frets...personally I'd use GMM if I could only use one.

That was one of my favorite builds!  I used the Tom's Modelworks PE.  Sorry, didn't keep any extra parts if I had any.  One of these days I may try the 1:700 kit.
