Water-line Conversion of Injection Molded Full Hulls

almost done...

Here basically is the finished result. You may notice that the base plate strake is made of two pieces, that's because I had run out of the material to do it with in one piece. I joined the two pieces by drilling a hole in mated ends and gluing in a metal rod. It worked nicely and is as rigid as a one piece length. One thing I forgot to show for the process was the test fitting of the decks. This I did throughout all stages to make sure everything fit properly up to the end result.

Very nice feature. I have a ship in my stash that is a full hull in 1/700 scale that I want to make into a waterline. This will be of great help. Sam
