Looking good Kevin, as well as needing a bigger wheelie bin and freezer I think you need to add a bigger seat :) She is huge.

good evening everyone

 

thank you for comments and likes

i was trying to reduce my updates to every other day, but i miss the being part of the community (if that makes any sense), yep i miss someone to talk to other than the wife or the dog, one of them is not that interested in what im building, the other one is asleep under the desk

 

day 66 midships upper deck box girders with port and stbd transverse beams done

 

3 hours cutting out, cutting slots and folding

IMG_3549.thumb.JPG.6b8c37efe003ab2689ba136c0b9971f0.JPG

the upper deck consists of about 180 pieces and took me two days build time (about 8 to 10 hours)

day 67 its just an illusion

having completed the after and midships section web frames (port) i need to start closing in the stbd side, i am not sure how to do this, in the cutaway format

however before that CARGO

last night i decided she would basically be a builders merchant carrier, and carry items of that nature, so to keep the weight down aft i went for pipes

 

leaving the shaft tunnel free, as i want that to be seen this is the best i can think of for now

day 68 the illusion continues

the pipe loadout continues and I now have something that resembles a image i had in me mind

so now the frames for the port side can go in

 

straps are elastic bands

styrene rods with the glass from the Amerigo Vespucci port holes as post caps
