hi fellows,

after some days of hard work, i can finally continue with this construction.

I have finished sanding, (i hope), and i have started adding some major superstructures.
Image

Image

Image

I have already started the port flight deck support, with a great amount of holes.
Image

Hull stabilizers has been fitted in place
Image

Image

Building process of elevator nº1 structure
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Stardboard support structure between elevators nº1 ans nº2
Image

Image

That´s all for the moment folks.

Jorge
