That's all for this build, I hope you enjoyed watching her birth as much as I did building her.

Mike





On the water she performed well within the confines of the indoor pool and this picture shows her with the Arun (centre) and the Severn (right) that followed her after she left Falmouth to go to Dover.But she didnt get taken home by Mike, instead after a lot of pleading,she was purchased by me,and sailed back to her new port,Falmouth,where she was originally stationed.Incidentally 50-001 was not named until after she left Falmouth to go on service at Dover. Her first shout whilst at Falmouth turned out to be a bronze medal service in horrific seas.

Thanks Neil,
Slowly finding my way round and will post regularly I hope,in future.
Yes, I will be following Mikes build of The Will,very closely.It is an in between build for Mike,and he will be working on her during any spare time from his other projects,and I am sure it is going to be a very interesting build,as well as being another of Mikes wonderful models.
