All decks assembled
A significant amount of filing for two of the forward bulkheads was necessary to have the foredeck sit in place properly so that there was contact with the frames at all possible points.

The model is now ready to have the bulkhead frames tapered to receive the hull planks in a nice smooth curve from stem to stern. The deck planking can also be applied.
