Many thanks, everyone. I've a much better picture now. Odd how these things are often overlooked.

Dave.you are right;the crew toilet discharge outlets are pretty evident on the front lower hull,due to its steep angle. the remaining scoops will be hidden...displaying your model on a piece of mirror would be a good way to show those details.
Making those scoops in 1/35th will be tough, I made my masters from styrene stock and turned brass,the shapes are pretty straightforward but in 1/35th they will be very small!!That's why I choose 1/16th scale for my build

"toilet discharge outlets", no wonder I couldn't find them in the Elco drawings, I was looking for pooper scoops. Thanks Daniele, and thanks for the list of bottom inlets /outlets, that will come in handy someday.

I've got my hopes up this time David, SW hasn't rejected those throttle levers yet. The weekend crew must be braver.

So far all is quiet. I need to check with them to find out what's happening with some of my orders on other projects. Their production rate has dropped.

It should be OK now David, Pat's done hogging the machines: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2478697&page=13. Very cool, that is going to be a sweet boat.
