Very nice, might redo the aft structure on my Model Slipway kit to have it raised with the windows...
What did you use for the fairing around the , what I would call the flying bridge?

Chipo Chaso Bryan  :-))  and Dicky0 Deeo

Your comments are being noted  :embarrassed: %%

Mind you, as far as kits go, hand on heart I have seen a Billings ZwartZee on ebay it was plank on frame kit - and this was my very first kit I ever built - way back when I had short pants on (yesterday) hey I am tempted to get one - but I dont think I could follow the instructions - I would have to have someone to show me  :-) :-)

Allthough I keep a close eye on your build, I'm reluctant to comment. Why - Because I have no words that can express your level of or do justice for your
workmanship and skill.

All I can say John is you keep on inspiring me to reach greater heights, because anything is possible if your willing to try...

hi there all

Just a quick update - I have been building the mast for the past 3 days.   A job I thought was only going to take me a day, turned out to be a bit of chore - but getting there.  The most difficult part was building the 'birdcage' or proper name - the Dipole Aerial.   I have had about 6 attempts at this, but, got there in the end and that is all its getting  :-)) .   I still have to make the television aerial or Yagi Aerials.....they fit on the mast along with the radar and loud-hailer .... job for tomorrow.

Lovely stuff John, I've been looking forward to seeing her with the mast fitted. The RTTL has more aerials than the BBC. :o :-)

Yet another stunning build completed John. O0 O0 O0

On another note. Do you have any pictures of Fairmile D's? I got a copy of photos of the Fairmile B you done, but one of the fellows I know won that hull I bid on. {:-{ So I got myself a D hull instead. :} Models or the real thing. Any help you can give would be great.

Thanks,

Hi there

A note for FLJ well he must have the fastest sound unit around now.  The RTTL did speed trials this morning at the Lake and it covered 100 yards in 16.9 seconds - not that fast I know, but, hey RTTL wasnt built for speed - but she had all her sound effects going full blast and I suppose that isnt bad for something one didnay build for speed  :-))
:-))  .

The P94 stood up well to the abuse it received; so did the sound effects and amp as they did get a bit wet!  Cant be bad me thinks.

What we read into this is, "had a lay in could not be bothered to find box Brownie and go down the lake, but had a great boating dream."

We've heard it all before John me old mate. %)
