the first coat of red applied on the fire control boxes - I used the same type of painting jig

not much of a painting jig but I did glue some scrap styrene to the halves of the lifeboat canisters in order to hold them when painting
Here are both halves together - it still has to be primed and painted
here are the vacuum lifeboat containers - I cut them out and used a perma-grit file to work the edges down rather than try to cut them to size
I have added details such as the brass plates, lights, anchor and painted the funnel gray.
