Finished the cylinder of the turret, and added the gunport stoppers.

Hull Plating

Got the exterior hull plating on, except for the raft's outer armor belt. I am saving that for later, since that is where it gets held, and I don't want the artwork getting worn, as there are still interior parts to do.
The raised keel is also being saved for later, so it won't get worn.
Fragile parts like the anchor, rudder and propeller could get damaged, so are set aside for later.
