getting the shaped sponsons lined up to the hull, once they're filleted in and a few other hull fittings are added it will be time to start thinking about making the molds..

not much for the week(work getting in the way of important things) sponsons all fillited and fitted in for the most part.. anchor chain fixtures fitted, some work for the center shaft still needs to be done, some raised armor plates and the hull rails.. getting closer(slowly) to making the molds..

hull rails and some armor plates added, positions for the bilge keels marked. a good coat of gloss paint to help point out the spots that need a little more fine sanding.. this master is getting close to completion.. masters for the large for and aft superstructure sections still have to made..

the 3D printed period navy anchors showed up today,, the stock on the larger ones works just the prototype.. all these guys got was a good washing and a quick coat of paint with the airbrush.. the designer has them in many sizes..

Really nice Todd.
It is always inspirational and a little humiliating to follow your builds.
