I made some more progress this weekend.
The milled areas are filed to shape.
I tried to rebuild the bow buoyancy tank, after reinforcing the bow halves with more glue attached to the seam.
The capstan base is moved 2 frames forward, and interlocking tabs are added to the undersides.
The foremost part is glued onto the bow,
and the hatch got some magnets salvaged from old cellphone speakers.
Last, but not least, I started with the gun area deck widening.
So far from my yard.
