Week 43  This week some more bulkheads and card pieces.

The bits we received

And what we did with them

Fitting these bits of wood was a little tricky, but take your time and use a square edge to help you.  The card template wasn't exactly right and needed a little trimming along the aft edge, but only a little !!  If you have issue 47 you can use the deckhouse roof as a guide.  It should overhang the bulkheads by about the same amount all round.

As you can see, I used the etchings rather than the card parts.  A couple of them needed a little trimming as they were a little too long.  This is quite easy to do.  Just file the end off.  It took about 5 hours to prepare the etchings.  The edges and corners where different etchings meet will be touched in with a fine paintbrush.  If you are using a spray can, just spray a little paint into the lid and use that.
