Finished and mounted the sail - had to mount the 'crows nest' lighting fire aft as there is no room for wiring runs side to side.....

Its been awhile because I basically screwed up and tried to cold solder the mother board and lights - big mistake. So started over and soldering now with an iron. Still left to do: fill the mid-ship's seam - Build the name plate and the mini-sub (movie one) - add the sound unit....the lights are all working at once now (only the emergency lights are on a 2nd circuit.) - I did damage the feeder lighting to the fibre-optics in the conning tower - One is slightly lighted - the rest are out - I'm unable to get back in to repair it....
