Week 76 This week we get more brass bulkheads
The bits we received
And what we did with them
The first few bits of brass went in place very easily.
These next two bulkheads needed a bit of fettling to get them to fit properly.
Those scratches adjust where I scraped some excess glue off. They look much worse than they really are !
A couple of ladders to go on. The bottoms needed trimming as they were a little too long.
