    so i am luck enough to have a 3d printer so i thought lets get it involved with the build so first addition is the marker lights and blinkers easy enough as seen in the pics it will be lit so holes drilled into the fly bridge sides to let the bulbs in also and with the film version there is a metal tube running from the fly-bridge through the roof down to the internal controls so ive simulated this with a printed tube and then drilled a hole in the cabin roof the idea here is so any electrical s up here ie marker lights and the control panel and the spot light wires can all be hidden and routed through here which will come out at the bottom of the cabin๐Ÿ‘or thats the plan a
    .. i have also measured up and printed a control panel and shelving for the fly-bridge as you can see it incorporates skirting so you wont see were the marker light wires will run

    i have now started to construct the flying bridge basic ply construction the a bit of mahogany planking on the outside with some trimming i will on the next part install the marker light carriers and control column and shelf at the front the idea was to install this permanent to the super structure roof but i have decided to bolt it down so i can remove later if ever needed๐Ÿ‘

    here we have the front window frames installed as you will remember in the film these are hinged as Brody climbs out of them in the end once the orca was sinking
    i have also installed the front cabin roofs and sides here
    last pic shows the small side lockers installed i did these out of a small block of Balsa and grooved them the added a ply lid
    all fitted looks real snug against the side walkways
    its really starting to look a lot better know
    before i forget the main roof and super structure sides have now got beading once painted it will all become one

    on this next part i lined and stained the rear deck flooring adding in the hatch as you remember the rear floor comes away with the superstructure to give me more work room inside the hull
    i also made the cabin door this will be hinged and operable

    looking at the underside of yours it looks like there has been two bulkheads fitter to the top im sure it should only have the one thats further forward near the front windows

    as you can see success๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ brilliant
    as you can see through the windows on the last pic i will be covering up the forward bulkhead with the interior controls
    also worked having the longer prop tube the motor will not interfere with any of the cabin interior and sits low enough for the floor not to be compromised ๐Ÿ‘

    so here it is so far main part done and sized to fit the hull as you can see i have made this all one part . it will now allow me access to the full hull interior this way i have also added the inside walls as the plans didnt show this plus i dont think the particular plans go with an interior but i want one so the idea will be to fit the interior controls interior cabin door and side cabinets in here then once i figure out how im going to do it ill install a removable floor containing the seats and the table that should butt up to the forward controls and cabinets .. this way i can remove the floor for cleaning purposes as time goes on also to note the rear open deck is attached lets all now see if my method has worked ๐Ÿ˜‰
