Hi All update on this build  still trying to make one side of the superstructure removable. The rest of the superstructure is masked off ready for the respray.

A few weeks ago I did say I would not post any more pictures of this model until complete . The work on the hull is finished so just a few pictures to show how it looks in bright sunshine enjoy.

 I am please to say I have hopefully made one side of the cabin removable for any future access.  Also jus a few pictures showing parts of the superstructure masked off and ready for the respray.  I am having to do this due shade differences with Humbrol paint.  The two anchors are tensioned by attaching thin brass wire to the chains these are the  passed  through the hull and into the brass knuckle tighten up the screw job done.

Superb Stan, well on the road to being finished. Everything is coming together nicely for you with a not so
straight forwards build. She will look fantastic when the superstructure is fitted. :-)) :-)) :-))

Must agree with Rays comments....superb work  :-))  ...very lifelike images  O0


One question in my mind for a month or so Stan.......the Stdb water tap at the bow is brass, but the Port tap is chromed


The must be a reason for this.....salt water/fresh water...but not sure?

Just a few pictures to show the ultimate in masking. This had to be done due shade problems with the paint I E the superstructure was not the same shade as the hull. The superstructure now looks like an Egyptian mummy I will post more picture when all the masking is removed.
