Got to the point where the launch had to be separated from the jig...











So once separated i rubbed the top of the ribs down and then primed the interior..

Exactly Alan where do you display these big ships!
HMS Victory will be in the back bedroom on one wall...
The facing wall im comtemplating making into the building area.....
Work bench as there are 4 double plugs on that wall and it also gets the natural daylight aswell....


But one thing this hobby enables you to gain access to skills that you did not you even had or you learn them but its a big learning curve......

Anyway the hand drill n bits game today.....progress BigGrin
