Next Section of the Upper Hull: Port Side

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 (Port) to the upper left rear, aligning the forward mounting tabs to the matching posts of the existing Hull section.

Fit the front rounded tabs first (yellow arrow below), then bring the rear of this Section to the lower Hull (red arrow below), as shown:

Step 2

Secure this Hull into place with five (5) LM screws, as shown.

The Allen Key for these screws 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:

Thoughts


With this Hull Section installed, we have now completed Pack 11 of our RMS Titanic build. We are quickly approaching the stern of the ship and I can’t wait to see how long it will actually be!
