Increased workforce at dockyard
« on: September 25, 2012, 03:39:50 PM »

Increased workforce at dockyard

With three ships on the slips, and schedules slipping, we decided to increase the dockyard workforce to help speed construction. 
Approx 1/4 scale.  Myka & Yuki.
However they seem more intent on sleeping in hull and box compartments, plus pouncing on everything and each other. 
The worktops at least are being rapidly cleared of anything that can be moved.
Good Moderators, they will walk over the keyboard if I try to post anything inappropriate.





Does anyone else have dockyard 'assistants' ?

The new dockyard workers are very keen to get into every aspect of my latest build. 
Unfortunately their inexperience limits their help to playing with the cut strips and investigating the gluing.

I dont know about helping hands or paws; this new addition to my family was caught having a chew at the bow end of the model and then snoozing off on the workbench behind the model - he wasnt happy to be told off - so moved on to his next favourite place :-)   He has the annoying habit (one of them!) is standing up and blocking the view of the screen as he loves to chase the cursor - I think he also is jet propelled unless its the Mrs :-) think we better change his food :-)

aye
