Next step was building the roof of the wheelhouse - the instructions include a template to cut out and tape to the roof in order to drill holes for the rails and stantions.
Here is a shot of the front. I masked off where the deck of the wheelhouse will go to make it easier to glue.
Strange thing happened, in some places the paint seemed to "rip" away. I don't know what caused it - probably I didn't clean the plastic properly before I primed.
Here it is after one coat - you can see in the pictures my fancy painting jig made out of a wire coat hanger
Decided to paint the superstructure with primer
