Have been fixing small fittings (loads of them) and painting them and the handrails.

I am still waiting for the paint for the decks as I was sent the wrong shade of green.

I have finished the rhib but wont be fitting it until the deck is painted.

Have unmasked the windows after painting the frames.

Have fixed the screen wipers (very fiddly) a nice detail.

Still thoroughly enjoying the build and a way to go yet.

I'm enjoying the build, Richard,   :-)) it brings back fond memories of an excellent kit, which seems to have been improved in some areas since I built mine, such as replacing steel rod with brass.

Thanks chaps I am really enjoying this kit and would recommend it to anyone.
Had a couple of small problems but Jackie and Laurie were really helpful and sorted them out for me.
Might have to get another Model Slipway kit next time depending on the state of wifes credit card. :-))

Fitted lots more fittings.
Painted the deck and the detail work.
Fixed the decals.
Tidied up the internal electrics.
Still have a few bits to add and I need to varnish it.
Will have to start thinking about what to do next once wifes bank balance has caught up with my wish list.
Will have to make do improving the fleet in the mean time.

Hi Richard,
I am fine and I hope you too. I hear that your emphysema is still bothering you. Don't forget to wear a good breathing mask in the dust. :-))

I am running similar dual ESCs with intergrated mixers in two of my boats (Rembertiturm and Tsekoa II) and love it. I could have saved the bow thruster in the Tsekoa.
Anyway, good to see that you are in action again and looking forward seeing the boat on the water.

All the best

Wilhelm

She looks great Richard, well done! Glad to hear that your P94 works well, I've just about got one mounted in my new project, and it seems to work well on the bench, and to a limited degree, in the domestic test tank. Yes, you've guessed it, it's another tug!!!

Great job, Richard, it looks marvellous on the water  :-)) It also seems to have quite a turn of speed.
