Finished keel plating Hi All Most of the rest of the plating went on quite well I wish I had decided on slightly thicker card after finishing the bow. Although I packed out the longer spaces between the formers it is still all too easy to get a dent into the plate. The good thing was that the plates fitted exactly to the stern plate with no trimming much to my surprise I was quite expecting to have to chop a bit off. It looks better in real life than in the flash pics but with 2 or 3 coats of paint and a bit of filling and sanding it should be OK. This made me scratch head for a few minutes until I remembered the plate has to be cut in two to fit round the skeg.I added a couple of supports from scrap card to support the plating more or less worked would have been better with a full fill in of the space. Plated skeg. A rather unkind flash pic.
