The accommodation superstructure is now almost complete. Handrails and ladders added. I remade the aft bridge external walkway/platform as I wasnít happy with my first effort.
External stairways added.
Funnels completed.
Some signage included.
Radars in place. The one on the stbd side works with a 6v geared micromotor but itís quite noisy...has anyone had similar issues? Might just need some soundproofing!

Iíve also fixed the lifeboats in their Davits to the structure but not shown in these pictures.

Still have some little bits and bobs to add; battery boxes, MOB buoys and ramps, compass binnacle, hose boxes etc then I can move onto the main deck and stern bulwarks.
