Would it not be easier to make the 'Glasshouse' from 1.5 mm. Perspex and mask the windows?
The protective layers on the Perspex can be used for masking.
That's what I did for my patrol boat

Hi tugnut,
Very impressive hulls,  do you make the super structure out of cardboard 1st before cutting any wood?
Looking forward to seeing more of the build

On the bench, they look like the real thing in scale and effect. Its only when on the water surrounded by 1:1 scale life that the impression stops.

Gorgeous craftsman ship. The wheelhouse is especially good inside and out with special attention to current technologies in control systems  :-))
