Let go!!

Cut the first piece of paper


And more...


Al these pieces become the backbone of the ship:


The ribs are laser cut so that's easy



Dry-fit on the backbone



The ships floor also laser cut:


Dry-fit, dry-fit, dry-fit.......


And even more dry-fit


Started to glue the ribs on the backbone, LEGO helps to do this very straight.




And the first mistake in the laser parts....there is no tab...


So cut the tab myself....


Fred

Thanks guys!



Next the first layer of the skin:



But first sand the ribs in a good shape:

One of the decks is to wide, so sand this to:


And than glue the waterline:


And upper line:


Nice working in the sun


The first layer is glued on:


Next the skin itself, but first cut....

That's a very solid and precise-looking framework, Fred!

I can't wait to see the ship with its light green skin on.
