Neil, 

The problem is that there is only one not very good B&W photo of the original. There are lots of model photos, and lots of different colour schemes. Rolling Eyes

OK, all the chores finished so back to modelling 2thumbsup 2thumbsup  -  except I'm not bounce bounce
I set up the test tank to ballast the hull only to find that I only have about half the lead I need Sad But shortage of lead is only half the problem. When I have the lead I am not sure I can get the weight where it needs it.
So - its back on the shelf. Its far too hot to be messing about with that sort of problem - shame as the vents for it arrived this morning.

A trip to your local tyre shop and ask really nicely lol They'll likely give you as much lead weights from tyre changes as you want last time I asked I took home a 2 litre ice cream bucket full weighed around 10kg.
