Gorgeous job. Well done.    :-))

We've heard of the White Swan in the Titanic Society and I've been longing to visit.  Now I must go along just to see the Mauretania.

Cheers

I got a good look at this model "in the flesh" so to speak, prior to Brian_C starting on the restoration and, although I knew he was dedicated to bringing the model back to her former glory, I can honestly say I didn't expect to see it so thoroughly transformed.
An excellent and professional job there Brian - well done mate.  Praise given where praise deserved.  O0
