Hi All

Just a few random pics of where I am at now.Most of the kit items are either skinned or replaced with Raboesch ABS sheet or section.I have found that thick CA is the best glue for laminating this stuff to wood after mediocre results with UHU acrylic(stabilit express substitute) and epoxy.The idea of skinning is that I can use scale thickness bulwark gussets etc and easily glue them in position.
The pics show everything very much warts and all %) lots of remedial  fill and sand before painting.I am fitting the cable guards first as in the kit instructions as the uprights go below decks 10mm to allow secure fixing with epoxy.Hence the hull will not be completely skinned until I am satisfied I now longer need to get to the underside of the decks ;)

Kind Regards
