What a day. One of those "good, bad and ugly" ones.
Body separator finished. Vertical and horizontal bars are giving a snug fit of the two sections. No need for screws and stuff. Worked as designed.
Bow and Aft section 2°degrees out of line. Lesson learned here. When building a skeleton body with a separator part in it start with that and work your way outwards. Took 2.5 hrs to correct it. Aaaaargh ....
Probably no one else will notice it but i now know it and it will always catch my attention.
Body separator detail. Aft rudder holder with red plastic cover because i'am short of 1mm aluminum in the moment.
Front rudder show off (ahem ... cough). Making sure that the rudder shape does not touch the hull when in action (the serious part of it).
The "married" VIIC. Worst parts before the hull ar finished. All openings geometries for the hull are fixed now. Only thing left are the hundreds of cutouts in the hull. May be it will not be that hard when my idea works out .... but which idea of _this_ ship builder ...
