They look great Dave. We will have Mobys all over the world soon.
My first test Mobys looked just like yours but I seem limited in finger dexterity and had a little trouble getting my fingers on the latches when I wanted to install the hatch cover. To resolve that on my final version I let Moby's tail hang past the edge of the hatch so that it stuck out where I could easily put my thumbs on them to rotate them down.
I'm surprised you don't have stiffeners across the inside of the hatch cover. Are the decks flat?
Have you seen the Danish edition?
