The Next Upper Starboard Hull Section

As part of my Frosted Windows mod, I use sanded acrylic strips to cover up these portholes:

Step 1

Retrieve your Hull assembly from the previous issue. Fit this Hull Section (Upper Port Side) to the upper right keel, aligning the forward mounting tabs to the matching posts of the existing Hull section.

Steps 2-3

Secure this Hull into place with six (6) LM screws, as shown.

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:

Thoughts


We are now finished working on the Hull assembly for this pack. It can be safely stored away for now as the next four issues all involve working on the Bridge Deck assembly.
