Hallo everyone,I finally managed installing the mufflers on my model, building them was a real drag. I also took the insane decision to fit the control linkages and butterfly valves, ready to be smashed during clumsy handling.
Any comment/criticism welcome and appreciated.
Regards







Many thanks again to Bridge Carney for providing some very usrful PE parts for this section.

From what I've seen of Daniele's work (photos posted and others he has sent me) we are seeing the development of PT model that will include the most minute details and with the most detailed accuracy. Daniele's personal profession requires significant precision and it is flowing into his work on his PT model. I am really excited to see the developments as he continues to post them in the future.

I love the detail that Daniele has already added in the 'sea growth' detail along the water line of the transom. I will have to see about traveling to Switzerland to see this model personally when complete. It will be that impressive!

Those look really good Danielle! You are a true craftsman.

Any chance of you making some working 1/16th Packards so we can see the mufflers in action?

Absolutely no working parts on my models! Moving items are only for ease of handling/painting,during finishing phase everything gets permanently fixed.
Some pictures of the completed and primed stbd muffler cluster. More pictures on www.ptboat195.blogspot.com.










Hope you enjoy this product of swiss craftmanship.

This is most excellent work. The lighting on these details provide even more details than the first photos. The details of the collars, linkages, linkage rods connections are much clearer here and it is extraordinary.

Truly impressive work, Daniele. You had stated in a previous note to me that you're not a watchmaker, but clearly you're more than that.


Cheers!
