Hi
I am just about to start building a Mersey Class lifeboat build and was wondering what thickness plasticard you used for the cabin structure.

With the fine weather over the last couple of days the outer roof panel was made and glued in place, along with the front floodlights. Every opening was then masked off to keep the paint out.

The whole structure was then given two coats of white primer/undercoat and, after leaving overnight, two coats of orange topcoat today.

This will now be left for at least three days to allow the paint to harden off before work on the outside is started.
As a fellow scratch builder its nice to find another who's work bench is a scene of organised chaos to others , and I also collect useful bits in my slop chest which form the model under construction ....

A pleasure to find I'm not unique ......love the detail ....turns and average model into an excellent one ...Well done Mike
