a quick up date and I found a bit of a disaster...
the funnel was too big on the length but the height and width were ok.
the length was pushing the director tub over the top of the rear PomPom gun and it just looked wrong.... so I asked my friend to print me a new funnel and made the supports for the director tub.
I have also started fitting the railings, ladders and other details

no I didn't put glazing in as it would be awkward to paint later...



I took Glory out for some more testing the superstructure is getting bigger and heavier so wanted to see how it handled








and a video of it sailing
