Essentially this is the port side of the completed model. It still has to be primed and then painted. Note the addition of doors, boat hooks, life rings, and guns.
Guns are from Britannia Miniatures in white metal. They include two 20mm AA guns and one 37mm AA gun at the stern.
I left a lot of open deck space to evacuate refugees, stranded and bypassed soldiers and cargoes. Since this is a wargame ship, I wanted to include some play value for the model.
I added a boom crane for the bow and the Nazi eagle is from an old Matchbox armor kit, it was on the wall of a building. Squares on the walls represented blanked off windows. Life ring from Matchbox Flower Class Corvette. Anchor from the spares box.
