Week 37  This week more eyelets

The bits we received

And what we did with them

Nothing with the eyelets, but there is some more work now.  The scuppers need to be drilled out. 

These were marked as per the instructions, then 2 1.5mm holes were drill so the almost touched.  The drill was moved sideways to join the 2 holes, and finally finished off with sandpaper.  The photos show both the inside and outside of the bulwark.  you may notice that one of the scuppers has a lump out of the top.  Not quite sure how that happened, but a tiny bit of filler will sort out the problem.

Hot tip of the week

Peadar McFadden posted a message in my Guest Book to say that he disagreed with me about the eyelets and he liked them.  Modelling is a very personal hobby and what one person likes, another hates.  Neither person is wrong.  As long as you are pleased with you model, that is what's really important.  If I gave the impression that I was telling people not to fit the eyelets, then I apologise.  What I meant was that I don't like them, and I am not going to fit them.
