Week 26 This week we get the second part of the rear superstructure
The bits we received
And what we did with them
I've glued the round cover, tow bracket and light on the outside of the rear part. These were just done with super glue.
The tow hook will be fitted after any camouflage has been applied. The starter cover needs to be painted on the back, so this will be fitted after it's painted. Note that the smaller pin of the starter cover is too long and needs about 1/2 its length cutting off.
The bracket is fitted on the inside. The inside will be painted red oxide rather than ivory.
The interior is painted red oxide.
The hand crank plate was given a couple of coats of paint, as was the exterior of the bulkhead. Then the hand crank plate was attached. It will get another couple of coats of paint now everything is glued in place.
The tow hook will not be fitted until after the exterior painting and any camo pattern is completed.
