I suggest a very LIGHT roof, and thin plexiglass windows. You risk capsizing with such an high superstructure. Or have you already fitted a depleted uranium keel?  ;D
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

Did I not mention the flying bridge and large mast-top radar installation?  And the helipad?

 ;)

Nah, she'll be right mate.  A simple curved roof with a stubby mast on top of it holding nothing more than a radar reflector and a radio aerial.
Ammunition and equipment stowage in the hull will add weight low down.

Today i fitted "rungs" to the mast so a crewmember can climb it should they need to.
An Academy US 2 1/2 Ton truck kit provided ammunition and other stuff stowage for the aft section of the hull and a pair of 50 cal machine guns.

Thanks BB.
It's nearly done.  Painting has begun.
I do still need to fit the rudder but I have solved the dilemma of how exactly the internal side of the rudder actuator gear works by hiding it under an ammo box.

Cartoonish is good.  I like cartoonish.

I put some transfers on today.  Nothing much, just some numbers.
Ammo stowage is in place, gun mounts built and guns primed.
I still need to scratch build one of these.
