Thanks John. Thanks Hayden.
Can see light at the end of the tunnel now and things are starting to fall into place quite quickly.
Glazed the windows without too much bother that part can be a nightmare if it goes wrong, and was able to knock out the railings in an afternoon. I had thought that they would take longer but they came together pretty easily, considering the complex form of the top rail. They are brass rod, soldered and filed clean.
All painted and glued into position, so the cabin is stating to look the part.

Still deciding whether to put the canvas siding onto the flying bridge railing. Tending towards yes at the moment.
The grab rails on the real boat are stainless steel but I've upgraded my Hikurangi to polished brass. She deserves it and it goes well with the polished teak.

Lots of touching up and tweaking left to do. I spotted a few dust fingerprints in the last batch of photos that need to be cleaned up.
