Installments 30-38, Preview Part A

I’m giving up all hope of keeping up with the build, due to other commissioned commitments… but I’ll keep posting about the installments’ contents as they come in. One thing I’ve noticed is that the parts delivered do not always match up with that week’s work… we are often working with parts delivered in previous installments. So I have two chapters here… first I’ll show the deliveries, followed by a description of where the build is, per the current issue.

 

Installments 30-34: Mostly more planking.
