Little more work, made the bilge keels and fitted them last night.
My method is to use 40 thou plastic card cut to shape and then drill and pin using brass pins. These give strength for mounting to the hull. Later I will use good old P38 car filler to give then there final "V" shape.


Next part of the build, will be to make the stern trim tab, sand down the hull, true up the hull edges and fill in any blemishes in the hull so I can have it ready for paint primer. Then this build will have to go on hold for a month or two.
