Week 31 This week we get yet more forward superstructure
The bits we received
And what we did with them
This looks like the deckhead of the lower bridge deck, or deck of the bridge deck if you prefer. (Deckhead is a nautical term for the ceiling.)
I didn't remove the superstructure from the deck just yet, but carried out this assembly with it still glued in place.
This side pieces are straight forward. Don't get the port and starboard mixed up.
Here is the port (left) side. Note that the legs of the L of pieces 150 & 153 are slightly different lengths. Be sure to get them the right way round.
Things not yet done
Fitting the fore deck
Stern deck part 63 not fitted.
Resin bow piece 67 not fitted
Hot tip of the week
Don't leave masking tape in place too long. It peels off easily when it's fresh, but after a few days it becomes more difficult to remove.
How many hours does it take to build the model ??
