Hi all.
Yes the scale is 1/32.Quite a straight forward build this one.It's a companion for the Cruiser Tug.
Interesting points?
The stanchions are made up of 4 pieces.! piece 1.5 wire ,3 small castings.A total of 40 stantions make 160 parts.
There are 84 lifting rings to paint and stick on.
I have fitted a complete lighting system including the wheelhouse.The wiring being concealed in a false ceiling about 1/8th deep.All controlled by a 3 way swith.I all nav lights 2.off 3.anchor light forward.

More later.

Brian

The length is  34.5 ins and beam 9 ins.The left part of the wheel house is a toilet as you can see,the toilet roll holder is my contribution.The right side is access to below by stairs which I didn.t bother with as you can.t see anyway.

That's all folks as they say in Bugs Bunny.

Regards Brian
