Hi Martin , soory the pics are not brilliant,  this a view from the stern to bow, the sheerline unit fits well , you can just make out the battery pushed into the bow section

Now ive got nothing to do! I want build another u , the hull I have is a darnell moulding . Im not that good at cutting drain slots, I would like to improve  on upholder, the slots on the u class hull are a little on the large side, I had old darnell s class hull which was in a bad way so I thought I would experiment with brass square and filler on the s with the view to using this idea on the u.

A close up of the s class bow with brass square, I know this is fiddly but it does improve the look and neatness of the slots, pete

Yes, I think i did, split the single box in two and built to new bulkheads.
screws were also the battery charge terminals.
There was a Ron Parrot SALCON in there two.
Pneumatic valve and a glow engine carb as the blowdown valve.

Hi pete
the brass work is an improvement , giving you a clean edge , keep it up
I'm sure you can find something to keep you busy

I think jooles already has, the brass does improve the look I was going to try plastruct but couldn't find any box section, was at the pond yesterday afternoon , no weed at all . I think they have put some kind  weed killer in there the fish are doing fine , I was pursued by a rogue plastic bag that someone had been feeding the ducks with, I do miss sailing at east park, I dont think anything is going to happen till the coots have moved on.
