Try the one above increased to 100K.  I tend to use this size and it fills the screen lovely.

You are doing fine Graham! She looks lovely, very well finished, nice and smooth so far. Are you training the grand kids up for simple jobs like priming and the like?!

20mm mounts made.
Oerlikon gun 3d printed but have replaced barrel with brass tube.
In my experience the 3d barrels start to droop.

Here is a link to the website for the Higgins PT-658 in Portland, Oregon, if it might be helpful.

Quite a sight to see on the local rivers here when they run it.

I've been on board a few times, please let me know if some onboard pictures would help.
