Argh--- I thought about this, Boat Show Warwick, Model Slipway and my money met (not the magic 20 note I might add) result one little puffer kit !
And now over the festive time, when the workshop is too cold, and I've finished decorating the bathroom, the dining room table has become a nice warm building board.

Blimey Pete, your sheds like a tardis, getting all that stuff in there  :-) I'm sure you could finish the club 500 in the kitchen  {-) {-) {-)

Great Pete, made me feel a lot better, I thought my room was untidy till I saw yours.

No wonder you have so many part completed boats, I dont suppose you can find them. ok2
