Slowly but surely things are taking shape.
I have been working on the Hull again, or even for that matter Still
so the torpedo Nett booms have been applied, I have made them removable so the hull can be painted a lot easier, in the Kit the booms already have pins on them so all you have to do is drill the hull and apply the booms, not a bad idea if your painting everything one colour, but I have decided to paint them a very dark brown, being as the Hull is black I had work out a way to remove the booms, so with a load of self-made hooks and eyes the booms are now removable.
The steps on the side of the Hull are not shown in the Kit plans, but on photos that I have they are, so I made my self 4 sets out of Micro strips, the top part is 1mm x 0.2mm and the bar below is 0.5 x 0.5mm, these parts were glued together first of all, then they were applied to the Hull.
The wooden decks still have there protective coating, that will all come of once the Hull as been completely painted.
I have also been marking the deck for all the drill holes for the stanchions.
And I still have to enlarge the drilled out portholes and square them of to make square windows, were once the Hull has been painted the holes will be filled with clear drying epoxy.
hope your alle still gob smacked....!!
