Queen Mary 2 1/400 by Revell - Attempt number 4

Recommended Posts

Evening.

Although there is still a lot I need to get for this, there are still things I can be getting on with.

Such as making holes in a beautifully molded and crafted hull.

 

Time to crack out the Dremmel!

Thankfully, the plastic is really thick, and the areas that are indented where the windows are is really thin. As an added bonus, the thing frame in the middle of each window is the full thickness, so will be pretty strong. Holding up to the light, you can see how thin the windows actually are:

It doesn't actually take very much to sand it through, but leaving the frames perfectly intact!

There will of course be a little tidying up to do afterwards...

Although it seems like a daunting task, it goes pretty quick. Much better than having to drill 4 holes in each window and cutting with a blade anyway.

So I will leave you with my progress so far. I won't be in any rush to complete this task, as I have several weeks, maybe months before I have everything else I need.
