Hi all proof I've not given up on this.

Here is one of the four pom poms on the next part (they just take so long)



Here are the unfolded magazine casings for the rest of them



Here they are folded



Now I just have to cut the magazine's themselves and bend them then fit them, oh and then cut out and bend the body's, then cut off the magazine's off the plastic parts, oh then bend the cages for the magazines.

I really don't think I will do PE pompoms again.

I saw somewhere where someone makes resin and PE pompoms for 1/700 scale ships that have 100+ parts, including metal barrels. Whoever undertakes those is either a hero or totally insane, or maybe a masochist.

Hi Ken. That is a mind-boggling amount of PE and it's going to be a beauty when finished. I don't want to alarm you but all your photos seem to have disappeared apart from the very last post.

I can see them all and I am on a android tablet.
How very odd. They're all there this morning, but last night all I could see were the ones in Ken's last post. Bloody technology!

Hi Ken
Nice to see you are adding a kit to the PE! Never see so much etch - the detail is stunning.
