An keel cutout  got to be carefull though as its very fragile to move around anyway more links soon as I got have a rest an then go outside into my garage as that's where the ship is bein built an not indoors due to its size  an build a bit more as I want to start covering her today

Looking good Chris, and as you say, a bit fragile at the moment but it will stiffen up once you get the frames mounted.
Looking forward to seeing more as you progress.  :-))

Got a bit ahead of my self there as I should have shown a pic  of the plasticard fitted in between the H/J to serve as a spacer so when the hull is is covered an lifted off baseboard an bolts removed the plasticard can be removed to make a space to fit in  for the hacksaw blade to cut hull
