We have all watched the Seaview crash into the bottom of the ocean nose first in the movies. Well I will have to admit the nose is stronger than it looks. I built all my work benchs in my shop and they were built so that I wouldnt have to stay bent over a work area when working. Ok all that being said ,now for the lesson of the day. The hull of the Seaview is round and will roll when you leave it on the bench unattended. Yes nose first from the work bench to the floor (crash) . I was affraid to pick it up but it only chipped the primer on the tip of the nose. Lesson learnt lets move on.
The hull on the stand is for now seaview 1 and the other is 2
Seaview one has the bottom painted in a texture finish white and will be getting lights soon . Seaview 2 is the one that fell from the bench, after a little touch up I installed the flying sub door to one side, and yes the door will slide open and closed manually.
Doors on 2 do make for a problem with lights but I have something in mind. Now I have to put the rear fins on 2 , I have been putting that off and I am not looking foward to it. I will have to say it is nice to have two going at the same time , you prime one and while its drying you can go to the other . More later I am calling it a day.
