Hi Tuggie, nice boat 2thumbsup when did you build her ? do you have any photo's of the build please, I'm sure a lot of folk on here would be very interested to see them.

Do you have anything under construction at present or other boats you have built, photo's of them would be good too. Very Happy

We love photo's 2thumbsup

Very nice, thanks for sharing, I learn a lot from other folks pictures. 2thumbsup

I am fairly new to all this and have two scratch builds that have come to a halt whilst I sort out ground works around here but hope to resume at some point this year once things improve. I get a lot out of other peoples work and it makes me want to resume mine as soon as I can.

how I have missed this build I will never know, but what a beautiful model it is.

I love your scratch built superstructure....an amazing piece of[for want of a better word] cabinet contruction, because the same amount of work has gone into that as any cabinet.

superb work.

neil.
