Looking good to me. I like the twin color paint job!

One of those days when it is best to give up.
Spent the morning making the sides of the wheelhouse; sat back and realised I had made two identical starboard sides.


Doh!

Ah, crap. But $hit like that happens. Don't let it get you down. Consider it practicing for making the real thing  :-))

Technical question re. puffers: the hatches have boards round the edges that, with wedges, are used to secure the tarpaulins. Are these boards timber or metal?

A bit more progress with the wheelhouse; windows yet to be glazed. I am not sure how to hinge the door; 1/32 scale is a bit small for hinges. Might be pintles top and bottom; I have yet to decide.

Usually flat steel bar's, if that's the correct term, the thick end of the wedge would or should face forward.

Thanks, LB.



Windows now glazed, and roof dropped on temporarily. I am annoyed at the odd glue smear on the glazing- I know you can get model aircraft canopy glue, but no model shops near, and on-line isn't very quick.
Now to tackle the inside details.
