Cabin Roof Moldings

Cut and fit the cabin roof moldings from one piece of 24" mahogany. Apply Slow CA to the moldings and bond them to the edges of the cabin roof, as shown. Note that it will be necessary to curve the molding on the front edge of the roof into position.

Roger's Notes:  The manual instructs you not to glue the cockpit roof in place at this time.  This is to aide you in installing other items yet to come in assembly.  I glued mine, but I have years of experience with modeling.  If you find yourself not having a problem later in construction with your cockpit roof glued in place, then follow my construction sequence.

 


Cabin Side Moldings

Place the cabin roof in position of the cabin sides.  Make the two cabin side moldings from the remaining mahogany from the cockpit roof. Apply Slow CA to these pieces and bond them to the cabin sides, flush with the moldings on the cabin roof, as shown.

Side & Transom Moldings

You will need seven (7) pieces of 1/16" x 1/8" x 24" mahogany from Bag Number Two (#2) to complete the sub-assemblies in this section.

Cut a piece of mahogany to fit across the top of the transom. This piece is fit flush with the deck edge when curved into position, as shown. Apply Slow CA to this piece and curve it into contact with the transom.



Roger's Notes:  It would be helpful to have the rear deck hatch in place when fitting this molding. However, be careful not to get any Slow CA on the hatch.

Apply Slow CA to one 24" piece of mahogany.   Press it into contact with the hull so it is flush with the deck edge, as shown.


Roger's Notes:  I did this step on my model, but I used 3/32" x 3/2" x 24" pieces of mahogany from Bag Number Two (#2).

Butt another 24" piece of mahogany against the first piece to continue the molding to the transom. Use a razor saw to cut this piece flush with the molding on the transom.

Repeat Steps #209 and #210 to attach the moldings to the opposite side.  Overlap the moldings at the bow, as shown.
