During the Christmas break I was able to continue with the Police Launch. I finally remembered to take the canopy glue with me to Hungary.
I cut the glazing carefully with a pair of sharp scissors. All of the glazing came as a single sheet with both sides protected with a thin film. After cutting the pieces out, I shaped them to miss some of the protruding glue I had added for strength at strategic positions where the curved roof met the side walls. After peeling off one side of the film, glue was very carefully added to the wood, where possible, and to the window where not so possible. I found that the glue went tacky quite quickly so holding in place by hand was minimal, about one minute each piece. The results are ok. Once all of the pieces were fitted, I removed the inner protection.
Next job was to complete the fitting of roof items. Just a quick silly question. What are the two slotted rails on the roof for? Are they for tying things down? I have now also fitted the ladder to the roof.
When I return in May, I will complete this project and give it its fully built trial and a short video. I will also conclude this log at that time. The only things to do are to complete the wiring of the pump and radar motors, fit some of the deck fittings and add transfers.
