Back of the hull
The back of the Bantam is the area where the compromised hull shape shows more than anywhere. It's too wide so working by eye is proving difficult. However, I've pressed on and produced the raised area at the stern.
Basically, we have a metal plate space away from the deck to clear the steering gear underneath. There's another access panel in front of it - don't know what this is but it's now on the model thanks to some 20 thou plastic.
The rear section is beefier sheet and with rare presence of mind, I remembered to paint inside the parts (Railmatch Weathered Black) before putting them together. Poking a brush inside afterwards wouldn't be fun!
