Week 40  This week we continue with the deck houses

The bits we received

And what we did with them

This is the first part of the weeks work.  All straight forward, just be careful to get it all straight and on the centre line.

The remainder of the work involves preparing and fitting the etchings which I'm using in lieu of the card parts.  Have a look at the 'Detail Page' for details about preparing and using the etchings.  Finally gluing them in place is quite straight forward.

I'm quite pleased with the final effect.

Hot tip of the week - from Anthoy Du. Cann

For those of you fitting the eyelets think about the inside? get yourself a Spray Tin of white paint get hold of small straw there's plenty around spray the inside area with white and then for the finally a Spray Tin Illuminous Yellow sprayed inside will give the appearance of lights being on.

Next the eyelets need to be treated with a colour like black with slight dash of white.  Remember the Hull is going to be painted black and you don't your workmanship going to pot.
