  1. Thanks. To my eyes, the butt join between the brass gunwales and the hull required quite a lot of unsightly superglue. I think my choices are : 1. Live with it - it’s only 110mm long, so what looks like massive blemishs are tiny in reality, and could be disguised with stowage or crew figures? 2. Strip the gunwales off, clean up and try again, perhaps using deeper pieces of brass clipped to give “tails” to slot into the hull? I may try making some replacement panels to see if they feel achievable, and if they feel worthwhile.

  4. Hindsight always suggests many ways to do things better. Superstructure from 1mm plastic sheet rather than thinner, walkway supports from 0.5 by 1mm strip so it would sit on legs of 1mm square with support, and would mean the longitudinal pieces could be made from one piece.

  11. Only challenge so far was sawing the nose box to fit between the bolted transmission ribs, the instructions aren’t particularly specific about which bits go where, but referring to photos of the real thing gives a decent guide, and since the real things appeared to have been tailored by individual crews, who’s to say it’s wrong anyway.

  15. Suggestions elsewhere are that the pistol port is only waterproofed, not welded, so I need to add back the hinge detail I shaved off. Moral: model what you see, not what you think you see.
