Robert E Peary
 
As I have put the Guardsman onto the back burner for the time being, I started to look for a new project, a late friend left me the Deans Marine kit “Robert E Peary”, just be for he went into the Hospice, he had fitted the prop shaft and rudder.
 The first things that I have to do is order a new set of drawings from Dean’s, make and relocate the rudder, the reason behind having to make a new rudder is that the rudder tube is missing and the rudder shaft is imperial, I could ask Ron to sell me a new one but as I have to wait for the new drawings I just as well make a new rudder form the stock that I have, I know that it will not be correct but in the end it will be made out of brass and not out of W/M and also I can just make it that bit bigger to help with the steering.
So on with the build.  Mad

I've got it right it's the Liberty ship? if so that looks a nice detailed build and 1/96th scale gives a good level of detail.

Hi Swab

Yes you have got it right, it is the armed liberty ship and yes it is big it will mean back seats of the car will have to be laid flat.
