|Starboard panel glued in place with contact cement.|
|Pott panel glued in place, too.|
|I cut a template from sheet styrene for the front panel |
with the prominent, large hatch.
|The outline of the template were transfered to lithoplate. |
The hatch was then cut with a saw and then file to
exact dimensions using echappement file.
While cutting I backed the sheet metal with a
MDF plate to stabilize it while handling.
