Week 33  This week we get yet more forward superstructure

The bits we received

And what we did with them

This week was very straight forward.   I glued the parts in the photo below first.  Of course, everything was dry fitted first, and keep everything square.

You can get parts to fit tighter together by chipping off the inside corner where they fit into a slot.

Once everything was dry Kilroy fitted the top part 171.

And then he screwed the last four bulkheads in place.
