I added the inner track unit panels which allowed me to do the basic internal plating. This is quite plain as I do not know yet what will be seen. Until I do the uppr structure and deck I don't know where the lift will go and thus what internal walls etc will be added. I did the basic plating know though for ease.
As you can see I spaced out the one side as on that side will sit the superstructure up on the deck.
I added the rear extension of 20mm to match that done on the mock up as well.
As the inner track unit panels were in place I could finish off the underside of the hull:

Probably the next update on the Karrier will be Monday.
(copy and past job from the last post again.)
I have decided to run a competition revolving around the Karrier.
In the past while doing conversions people found it amusing if I kept a track record of the number of rivets I added, so I thought for this huge build I would do the same.
So the competition is this, you have a guess on the number of rivets I eventually add to the karrier with the person who is closest at the finish getting a Gun Emplacement kit as a prize.
However, to take part you will have to Follow this blog and post up your guess as a comment to this or the next post I do regarding the Karrier. You can change your mind providing you post your revised guess before those posts are surpassed by more updates.
After the posts open for guessing have passed I will do a running total.
* Notes - at the moment, depending how things go (i.e. if not much is shown in them) I may extend it.
** You may be thinking this is just a shameless plug for the blog attempting to get people to join in for a chance of a prize, and you would be correct.
