Finished another five non-watertight doors, that should be enough for my build, ironically I finally tracked down where the other two doors are located,
there were two leading to the RCN galley and another two inside the alcove recesses. Which leaves me with one extra in case of problems or someone finds anther
spot for them.
Next up is the watertight doors. I have made mine from a base of 0.010 thickness styrene cut 11 mm by 24 mm on top of this is a piece of 0.020 thickness
styrene 9 mm by 22 mm so that there is a nice 1 mm gap all the way around.
Rather unimpressive styrene pieces:
Edges are trimmed at a 45 degree angle and then filed to make a rounded corner. Hinges were made with left over stanchion pieces and they were placed 4.5 mm
from the top and bottom. Hinges were made with some 0.010 by 0.020 strips of styrene. Handles were made the same way I made them for the Engine Room Skylight,
bending staples for the wire portion. I used the same staples for the dogs for the watertight handles, because they have the curve already there. Trimming them
down to size and attaching them with 5 minute epoxy (I tried superglue first, but my applicator really sucked as it was one of those push end variety tubes).
I need three for the end of the Engine Room Casing and two for the Focsle.
Here they are getting added to the Engine Room Casing.
Speaking of watertight and non-watertight doors, here is the bulkhead under the focsle facing the well deck. Eight non-watertight and two watertight doors
(there actually is a ninth non-watertight door that accesses the companionway, but since it faces inwards and won't be visible once the deck is fitted I am
leaving it off.
