Week 30 This week we get some more of the forward superstructure

The bits we received

And what we did with them

The parts this week is the upper deck and first deck of the forward superstructure.  Refer to page 83 of The Bismarck - History & Destiny in the magazine.  The first section is straight forward.  Keep it square of course. (Sorry, another out of focus pic)

This little sub-assembly is nice and straight forward as well.  

Then comes piece 146.

Next I glued the piece 138, and taped everything back to the deck to make sure it was straight and followed the curve of the deck.

Finally glue part 147 in place.

This week was very easy - nothing much to note at all.
