Week 62  This week we get more brass bulkheads

The bits we received

And what we did with them

I've fitted the hatches, doors and rain covers.  The next job I'm going to do is fit the grills that are supplied in issue 68 (which I haven't got yet).  I'm going to do this before I bend the bulkhead as I think it will be easier to fit them straight while the part is still flat.

I decided that the vents would actually be big enough to fit later without too much trouble, so I have bent the part ready to glue in place.  Simply a case of bending it round the wooden part that it will be fitted to.

Here is the bulkhead glued in place.  It was glued with Araldite Precision, and held with clamps while it set.
