Well the glue dried off over the weekend and I'm gonna say that the ' soaking of the ply' did make a
difference as all the ply seems to have conformed to the contours of the hull quite nicely! .....

Just a few extra planks on this evening.....
Starting to cut in around the hull inlets and bilge keels.

 It so long since I done anything on the hull, 'Little Lindemann' had to get a broom out!

Well I don't really know what part I'm up to, I guess somewhere between 35 - 41. really....
I'm surrounded my thin sticks of wood, I've thrown the binder against the wall (which is now another sort
of Bismarck kit I'm going to have to build) and still the seems no end in site to the 2nd layer planking
and then suddenly .....   :o
