Week 44 This week more plastic bulkheads
The bits we received
And what we did with them
These parts went in quite easily. I used slow setting Araldite as before. Just do plenty of test fitting to make sure they are a good fit. I did need to trim an odd bit here and there to get a perfect fit.
Here are the parts glued in place, and you can see where I sanded down the edges to get a flat surface for the etched bulkheads that will eventually go here.
