This is the Heller 1:400 scale kit of the German destroyer Z-31. The construction involved no major problems, but as Heller provides only bare structures, so all the rest of details and equipment had to be scratch-built. No photo-etched parts of any kind were used, only plastic surfaces of many kinds, yogurt cups and stretched plastic sprue. I am modestly satisfied with the Flakvierling AA mounting. It is 4x4 mm. big, and includes a total of 19 pieces. The radar is another 25 pieces altogether as well. The model was hand painted with a hull red of my own and standard Humbrol enamels, both pure and mixed. All colours were thinned to a 30-40% with Humbrol thinner.
