Hi John,

The decal problem is solved. The sheet from Canada has the required leaves, I know the ones your on about used by the CNR, as I use to sneak across the railyards when I was a kid back home but they were a different leaf than the one used by the navy in WW2.
Thanks anyway.

Its going along quite well. Sorry, we're into football season now and every Sunday seems booked between now and February, should have had 3 girls. Anyway, the weather is co-operating. I've got the fordeck complete and have made good progress on the bridge, but with a new job and kids going to uni, well you know, oh did I mention a puppy as well.
I promise an update this week, oh got the stanchions from John Haynes, nice chap, too bad I live way down here in Devon, don't get to go to all these fun things. Might to a trip to Warwick, just to have a look see.

As some will have noticed from elsewhere on this forum as a complete begineer I am about to start building my own effort, name to be decided!

There are 42 small clear circular pieces [Part No L4] that need gluing to the hull, excuse what may be a silly question - do I use liqiud poly for this and does that make them watertight?

Thanks.

I use a 2 part epoxy which set rather quick 4-6 minutes. But I only did about 5 or 6 each time. Fun kit isn't it, kind of humbling with nigh on 1,000 pieces. Good luck, you should start a build thread and post some pics.

I assume that this is done after painting the hull.

I know, and October was when I went back to work full-time...busy, busy. Then Christmas, you know how it is. Still working on my Bismarck, but Santa gave me a new Spectrum DX5e 2.4ghz for Christmas, so as soon as the pond thaws and our lad does not have an away game on Sunday am, I'll be giving Snowberry another trial run on the pond.
