Things are moving along with the superstructure. I spent most of yesterday gluing on the 0.010” plain styrene sheet to the basswood. Although it is really a “pain in the ass” the results are worth the effort. I am using Walthers Goo® to glue the styrene to the basswood. I apply a thin coat to each surface, let each one dry for about two minutes then apply. I then sand the edges flush and add filler where needed. I should be done with applying the styrene skins a lot sooner than I thought it would take me. I am holding off on applying the four sides that have the RAS cutouts, these I will do last. I should be able to apply some 0.005” reinforcement to the cut outs as on the full sized ships. We will see. I will also post some pictures soon also.

The applied styrene sheets have worked giving me a great surface to apply paint. I have had no delamination or ripples in the applied styrene surface. I will have to wait an see IF this becomes a problem with time. wink.gif
