Saddle tanks / ballast tanks are done.
Wasn’t really sure how this would work and look , it was difficult to make ( bending plastic sheet, putty and and a bit of sanding.)
But turned out real good ..which was nice.

I love it all but the hatch work and precision of the grating is extraordinary. How did you go about making them?
I bought the grating on aliexpress,
They are laser cut ……cant get any better than that and it saves a lot of work.
The actual hatch is 3D printed by shapeways.
Railing in place (dry fit ) ,
Drilled some holes,
Glued the Port and starboard position lights in place.
