The Next Section of Starboard Hull

Back in Issue 77, I airbrushed and sealed this Hull Section 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. As with the port side we just completed, fit this Starboard Hull Section to the lower right keel, aligning the forward mounting tab to the matching post of the existing Hull section as shown:

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:


We are just extending the Hull on the Starboard (right) side to match what we did on the left, so this should feel familiar.
