Thank You!
I had a bad feeling, that something is not okay. That orange color is very wrong!
So, I checked with the original and fixed that shame!

Here are some assembled views.
Please, don't be disappointed from the awful first layer painting and the leaks. I tried new technique with rubber mask paint and i'm still not passed the learning curve successfully! Everything will be corrected with a very thin brush. I'm using self-healing car paints, so I promise there will be no signs from that mess!

Looking excellent! Certainly a lot of progress since the start of this project and it looks completely plausible and real.

Sorry for the long delay.
The ship is no more unnamed. Sorry for the stripped view, but i'm very close to completely finish the hull.
When I prepared to paint the ship numbers, I decide this will be very hard and dangerous task, and the result will be not satisfying.
So I started to think about decals. I made the file, but the decal paper is manufactured... in China!
It's miracle it arrived! Few tests were needed, to be sure that the varnish will not damage the decals. But everything went good from the first time!
The ship's name was a difficulty too. The letters are 2mm high. They are zoomed and photoed at very bright sunlight, but normally they look much better than on the photo.
You can see the toothpick for the scale on the few photos.
The last effort will be for the draft marks. And the time for final assembly will come!
Best Regards and stay safe!

Looking good! Glad she finally has a name and it looks like she is reaching completion.

Some details added, more are printed and underway.
The anchor capstan is the original from the kit, but it is not correct version for this class of the ships, the new is printed and i will replace it, when arrives.
