Hi Martin happy Christmas. These pictures bring back memories I remember them all. It seems a long time ago since I started the build way back in 2003 finally finished in 2009. Blackpool this year was the last time the model would be on public display. Hopefully in the future if the second carrier is built then Gambier Bay will be seen again until then she is boxed up out of sunlight and dust.Thank you Martin for all your efforts.
