3106Hrs – Full Ahead Both Engines
Once again the magic of doing things twice came into play today and I breezed through assembling engine box #2.
I won’t say it went into the right place on the first time of asking but it was close, and of course this time I marked the support rod hole positions before drilling them!
I took care to make sure that both boxes lines up with each other and it was pleasing to see the spirit level bubble sitting smack in the middle when I spanned the two boxes.
Once I’d got the support pins in place I sanded down the second engine well and soon had that hanging in position as well.
Before I bring the boxes back down for glassing and painting I’ll mark up the positions for the small pieces of side deck that bridge between the boxes and deck and I’ll check to see if there’s anything else that can be done.
