Week 54  This week we get the first catapult and a template for drilling the portholes on the hull

The bits we received

And what we did with them

Although we get the first catapult this week, the instruction tell us how to re-drill the port holes.  I'll do this once my hull planking is completed.

However, what I have done is mark out the correction to the deckhouse.  I'll cut it once I've got the brass parts that go on here.

Here is the cut-out after I've used the brass bulkhead as a template.
