Another Section of the Hull

As I have been doing through this build, I airbrushed and sealed this Hull Section (and the Hull Section from Issue 79) with Vallejo Anti-Fouling Red 71.442 and Vallejo Satin Varnish 70.522 acrylics paints:

Step 1

Retrieve your Hull assembly from the previous issue. Fit this Fifth Hull Section (Port Side) to the lower left keel, aligning the forward mounting tab to the matching post of the existing Hull section as shown.

I wrote the ’77’ (issue number) on this Hull Section so I knew which was which after painting them:

Step 2

Secure this Hull Section into place with one (1) LM screw. If you cannot fully tighten this screw, add a Washer or two under the screw.

The Allen Key for this screw was supplied with Issue 15. However, I have been using a stubby bit ratchet with a 2mm Hex bit to make tightening these screws much quicker and easier. This is also your friendly reminder to try using 3-in-One Oil on all screws going into metal:


It feels like we have not worked on our Titanic Hull in a long time! I am glad to see us extending it once again.
