Week 113 This week we get the front bulkhead
The bits we received
And what we did with them
A little bit of assembly before painting. In a nutshell, all the mould lines were removed, and anything to be painted ivory has been glued in place.
I painted the bulkhead ivory, but the brackets were painted red oxide. I figured that the red oxide parts would have been welded to the hull, so would probably have been red oxide, and that the bolted bulkhead would have been ivory.
The ammo pouches were added next. These were painted the same as the ones one the fire wall.
The 'other accessories' was added next. No idea what this bit is, and I suspect that Hachette don't either !
Now the bulkhead can be glued in place.
Here is a close of of the bracket detail. I think it looks right.
The ammo pouches were glued to the mounting plate.
Then this assembly was glued in place.
