Ferguson's 9th June 2010: Photos and Video Footage...

The team have been extremely busy over the past couple of weeks and as you can see from the images above, a lot of work has been done on the Comet since the last update. The photographs and videos in this post give you an insight into not only the current state of the Comet but also into how the workers go about replacing the old exterior. And that is, exactly, what they have been doing since the last update - continuing to replace the old exterior by using a steam box to steam the new planks of wood until they are pliable and able to be bent into shape to fit on the hull. Both of the videos below, like one of the videos posted here before, allow you to see this process for yourself.

Approximately one half of one side of the ship has been painted, as you can see, and most of the exterior has been successfully refurbished and restored. The same goes for the isolated wheelhouse - which actually appears as if it is near completion.
