This is a post of old and new. I made the bow and stern bollards and the capstan some time ago, but didn't think they justified a post on their own. Still here they are;
Made as per the kit instructions from the supplied plastic tube and nice photo-etch for the bases.
The bollards on each side took a little more thinking about. That's because the stern pair are larger and possible squatter than the forward pair; so the kit parts will be used for the latter. After some head starching, I bought a pair of 1/12 bollards from Model Slipway's lifeboat parts range and set about them with my saw! So. I cut the tops of each one and cut a section out of the base. Before and after below;
I then cut out the brace between each pair of bollards. The shortened bases were then glued back together and I made new braces and tops for each bollard from plasticard. Here's the results;
Hopefully, I'll not leave it too long before posting again!
