Done. I didn't use safety lines or stanchions, found no photos of them in boats in that theater. The only item I added was a stretched sprue antenna.---John

Thanks. Next build will be a bit more accurate. I have a question on the ventilator pipes on the rear deck. Are they suppose to be facing away from each other or all going in the same direction. I believe when the 109 was on the liberty ship they were in the position I now have them but they looked cocked a bit. Were they positionable? Thanks for all the help.---John

Thanks Al,
I had this impression that the crew might be able to position the vent from below decks. The drawings don't seem to indicate that. It looks like they can be positioned and tightened with a thumb screw. Any information or thoughts?
