Made a start on the eight lifeboats and launches. They’re turning out to be a bit of a nightmare. I opted to cut the hulls into two halves, and attach to the decks bit-by-bit. I couldn’t get the instruction version to work ie fold and glue the hull, then add the deck. The decks are also single thickness, which, once you’ve cut the lower deck portions out are obviously very weak and won’t take any load; I doubled them up.

First step - add the first side to the deck:

Next add the other side and slide the lower deck piece inside:

Finally glue the keel, lower deck and rudder, and add oars:

The real problem is that some sides don’t fit their decks at all. The steam launch is massively out:

I’ve tried to modify one, but messed it up, so I guess I’ll have to try and source another kit and try again. Which is annoying. I always seem to end up buying two kits these days!
