Sorry its been so long in adding more detail about my building but with one thing and another I have only been doing small bits I can now report that the hull is all painted will post some photos next time have forgot to take some.I have been so busy in getting the new boat club up and running and doing things for the club which I must say the club is doing well .
Well the photos today are of the forward gun thats all finished the wheelhouse and top bridge put together filled and sanded and painted so hopefully there is no joins,have painted the fore deck with matt gray and seeing that the plating is art paper I have satin varnish the deck to make it waterproof.Hope you like the photos. :-))
Sorry I have got to load the photo resize again as pc was playing up .

Heres the boat deck being fixed to the superstructure had to cut holes so that the boat deck stays fixed to the superstructure its held in place under side by glass fibra,now the fitting are getting put onto the boat its looking good and I can see if its all good if not I re-do it.

Wallace few things firstly
1) what is it you intend to light up (the running lights, bridge or the whole ship)
2) seperate switches (1 for the bridges and decks and another for the running lights)
3) what type of lighting are you thinking of using LED's, grain of wheat bulbs or Fibre optics

then we can shed some light on the way to go :D
