....oh yes, "its for my son", yeah heard that one before ! Good UK-ish subject as opposed to the very Yank towboats. Like you I have a few unfinished projects in the loft ! I see that wingertaz has a few nice items on eBay this week. I dont see any steps this time. You could also try Reade Model Fittings who have a link on Mayhem traders list. Post some pics on Mayhem when you make some progress, just to keep interest going on Springers.
