no rob I don't , I have been following a modeler on pete coleman's site , michaelD , but all of his photo's have disappeared , and he hasn't posted in a while , so I don't know what's happened to him .If you have any I would love to see them mate . 

PS- I forgot to mention , that dafi has sent me some very nice images of model's , done around that time , which have been a big help .

Your beautiful armoire has fallen on hard times.

What did you use for the hammock material?  Looking to do something similar.  Thanks in advance.

bob , I was lucky , as I had a spare set of hammock's from another kit , I just joined two together , and painted . I know some other modeler's have used milliput .

if you are interested , dafi , has a magnificent set of photo etch for the victory , it's expensive but , well worth it . if you click onto it their is even a PDF for each sprue , on how to apply and modeler's tip's . 

thank's steve .
