Managed to get a bit more done this week:-

Rear saloon doors made, varnished and installed.
Stowage lockers c/w varnished tops made, painted and installed.
Metal frames made for the seats (pics show difficulty I had getting things lined up for soldering)

...windscreen side supports made, painted and epoxied into position.
For'd saloon skylight frame made and glazed with an old plastic document envelope. (I'll be using this stuff for the main glazing when I reach that stage).
Had an off-cut from making the seat framework so used that to made a footrest for the driver...

...and finally, for now, made up the drivers seat cushion, in balsa which has been given a couple of coats of sanding sealer, ready for primer (when weather permits).

...oh, and I've made some cockpit trimming, to tidy things up a bit - just need to get them varnished %)

There's a rumour going round that this boat may hit the water one day, with the latest progress I think it just might  %% %%
Nice going Ray I lke the seats they look quite realistic.

Cheers Joe, the intention is to use the seat (it's in 2 parts) as the master to make 3 seats in resin - a single for the driver and 2 side by side for the passengers. Not sure yet whether to make others for the locker tops, it could end up as overkill.
Anyway, we seem to be making some progress at last  :-) .

Hiya Stuw, I use 'Formula 560' canopy glue. I've had this bottle since 1998 and it's still working fine. Any overspill is easily wiped off with kitchen roll. It does take a while to solidify but this gives you plenty time for any repositioning needed.
Definitely recommended  O0

...the drivers seat was primed, set up as the master and 3 resin copies produced.
As can be seen in this first photo, I suffered a bit of overspill. This is just one of the problems associated with dystonic tremors in my hand >:-o

Still, it could be worse. Anyway, with a little effort I was able to get all 3 seats made and trimmed up, ready for spraying :-))
