Cooks hatch

To make the cooks hatch i used the Modelbrass PE, but sanded smooth.

Small hole was drilled to house the handle. I discovered new way of preventing my delicate drillbits from breaking. I simply glue the bit inside the brass tubing.

Thin copper wire was soldered on. The edge of the hatch was made from 0,5mm copper wire, which was sanded square, then shaped to the outline of the hatch.

Hole was drilled in the deck in place of the hatch lock, and little groove to acomodate the soldered wire.
