The foredeck is almost complete for applying primer:

Also working on other decks. Here is the 3D model of afterdeck superstructure. A few touhes and i will send it for printing.

I made detailed research on Mk 32 SVTT reloading. It will be done this way:
1. Torpedo will be loaded on cart in torpedo magazine (left black door on the picture) and will be moved thru the door to the deck using removable ramp (as in the FRAM destroyers).
2. Torpedo will be moved from the cart to the loading mechanism(rail), attached to the tube, using winch (red ones left and right for each torp.tube). Right winch (left on picture) also will be used for boarding walkway too.
3. Torpedo tube is pushed from the loading rail into the tube, loading rail detached after that.

3 inch guns have 84 ready to fire rounds in 2 armored boxes behind the mount (in front on picture).
Ammo can be replenished via third winch (close to center) from right door on the picture (ammo magazine).

If you have any suggestions or corrections, please, share them with me!

Excellent additions.
Those close-ups of the MRS3 are very handy too as I'm replacing the MRS3 part we currently have in the SB parts sheet.

Hello again!
Sorry for my long absence - some medical problems and a lots of routine responsibilities.
But work still goes on, even it is somehow slow.
There are some of new things done:

A pair of Oerlicons for fishery protection.
I found a place for them on the central superstructure, near the fire control radar.

3d printed, designed by me rear running light.
[ img ]

Rear running light working. Still not painted.
[ img ]

An example of deck hatches magnetic locks.
[ img ]

Improvised paint workshop. Rudder is ready, main gun internal parts on primer,
rear running light received paint too.
[ img ]

Main deck ready.
[ img ]

Rear superstructure 3D-printed by my friend.
The starboard blast screen replaced. You can see part of the old style blast screen on the port side.
[ img ]

Antislip coating glued to the foredeck.
Horizontal RC anttenna is visible too.
It will be masked with ASW mortar.
[ img ]

Rear superstructure with the main gun partially painted.
[ img ]

Main gun partially painted, You can see gun sight and control panel too.
A very little of them is visible, so I decide not to 3D-print them, but to make them scratchbuild manually.
[ img ]

Another view of the main gun.

Have a nice evening!
