    Fiddly bits and lights
    Hi yโ€™all. Sheโ€™s almost there. I swear for a fairly easy boat to build I have almost as much time in the thing as my Neptun.๐Ÿ˜ฎ I keep adding a little here and there, but I need to finish her. Once I maiden her, Iโ€™m โ€œdoneโ€ I rarely go back to a project Iโ€™ve finished to modify or add details, with the exception of
    RC cars
    . The more I get into model boating however, the more I think that attitude might change. Anyway, I bought some detail pieces from Harbor models in California, and decided to add lights to the Acapulco too. The flying bridge now has a radios and a fire extinguisher. I took braided wire, stripped off the insulation and used that inside a piece of heat shrink for the hose, itโ€™s not perfect but looks ok. I shortened the radar mast that goes behind the seat because...well, I just didnโ€™t like how it looked. I added 2 aft nav lights to it also, Iโ€™m waiting on lights and boards from Harbor, once those are installed Iโ€™ll tidy up the internals, pinstripe the water line and she will be ready for her maiden run. I need to get her done as I have another project in the wings,and Iโ€™m gonna have to do some engineering to accomplish what I want I have in mind....๐Ÿ˜ Cash
