First shot of the extensive reworking of the hull I've been doing (very slowly - lack of time) over the last few months. All portholes have been replaced. KGV's stern deadlights are the main focus here - previously they were woeful, and missing the hatches entirely. She finally has her name embossed on the hull, and both bow and stern segments of the external degaussing coil have been completely rebuilt.
Some of the deck fittings are missing as they need to be replaced, and I won't show the bow area just yet as I need to finish off some areas of it. Additional portholes have been done for both Prince of Wales and Duke of York, although the latter's are not quite finished off yet.
