Week 53 This week we get the front of the hull
The bits we received
(and 4 screws not in the photo.)
And what we did with them
The inside of the hull needs painting red oxide, and the outside needs painting dark yellow. I haven't attached the rear yet as that is already painted.
The front is glued in place where is touches the bottom of the hull, but the sides are only screwed, so I can loosen them to insert the rear after painting.
The interior was sprayed red oxide, and then the exterior was sprayed dark yellow. I didn't bother masking anything. There is a little over-spray here and there, but both the interior and exterior will get another coat in due course.
I loosened the screws holding the sides and inserted the rear bulkhead. There are various spots that need a touch up, including the screw heads. The exhausts will need masking of course, but this will wait until some more of the interior structure is fitted.
