Pic 55:    Oh no, the boat. The casting supplied with the kit was truly atrocious - not only badly cast but distorted - and effectively unusable. Galaxy supplied two replacements, the second of which had all the interior mounting points and was even boat-shaped!

There's quite a lot of work to do inside the boat, so to keep it upright I made a rough little stand out of spare wood. The clamp is holding the central plank down while the glue dries. In all, this boat was to take 14 hours.
