Thank you Simon, I can't do much more until I get the hull and superstructure primed and painted, waiting for a dry warmer period to spray in the garage.

well at last the weather has improved and was warm and dry enough yesterday to get the priming done and today the top coat on the superstructure, now I can carry on with the wheelhouse fit out, just realised I've run out of dark green for the decks and the local model shop where I used to get paint and some materials has closed down and the postage for a pot of paint would be prohibitive, so it looks like an outing for the wife and me to craft store about 25 miles away, cost one pot of paint and no doubt lunch to boot  %%

Apparently,  'You're gonna need a bigger boat!" was an ad lib by Roy Scheider ( in the film Jaws )!
