Very nice, cant quite see the company livery on the funnel :o, Junior will be sending some stickers I hope O0     Passing thought, how about a couple of barges with stern to fit bow, like a notched barge except sideways instead of verticle.  Painted to match you could have a tanker or a super- tanker as and when you chose :D

SHE?S FINISHED

Completed at last and I have really enjoyed building her and learned a lot on the little journey. Now I have to put my mind to the next project, if I can get Mrs Footski to agree the expense!!!

Bye for now fellas,

Barry

How thick is the wood you used for the rudder support, I see it was made in two pieces.

Yes it was made in two pieces. each being 1/8th inch ply, joined after the rudder post was inserted between the two pieces.
