Upholders casing has been rebuilt using perspex to widen the deck the bow was built up using thick plastic card i used the  Renee le ferve plan of hms upright/ upholder to get the bulbus troublesome bow to its correct shape .Ive had to rescribe all of the deck detail and try to improve on my first attempt . The pics show rear escape hatch ,smoke candle ejector hatch , wt mast station ,which still needs squareing off, engine space cover plate which  still need bolt/rivet heads fitting, and that lovely bow, also when I got the kit it came with all fittings john supplied with hull,  hoping to get to norwich with the boat ,regards pete
