        Another small update. I've been detailing the wheelhouse. I've upscaled the original parts, making them taller so they are O scale.
        And added window frames inside

        Then I added the original doors, which although small, are just for access down to the cabin,
        I also scratchbuilt a steering wheel, from styrene using Carl Alessi's recent method for making circles using a circle template.
        The wheel may look a little "Jolly Roger", but it gives it a nice nautical appearance.

        I've also made the side/ rear deck section.

            Nice looking progress going on Rob. Great use of the original doors, believable for under cabin entrance use.

              Thanks Philip & Louis. I'm time challenged at the moment, so this is taking far longer than I hoped.

              So the cabin roofs are now on.
              I'm happy with the smaller doors for the under cabin bit. They were nicely detailed, so put them to good use.

              Slight error with my design though. One thing I noticed was that the interior doors were actually sitting lightly higher than the outside roof so added an extra bit on top of the outside, to allow them to open into. (even thought they don't actually move).
              A by product of this is, it's given it some extra character.

                On the hull I've a added a small lip around the opening on the washboard. It's called coaming. I've seen it on the prototypes, supposed to keep water out.
                And all the washboard is now painted.

                  Rob,

                  Like the previous ones, this boat already has a lot of character.

                        Thanks Mike, Carl & Ron. Starting to look like a boat now. I can now call the hull and cabin finished.
                        Now I need to make all the detail parts to finish it off. and of course weathering.
