Spook you might have space - maybe build boat stands that two up - double decker style O0

or even a glass coffee tabe that stores and displays two boats (hmmn - masts?)

You have lots of room Spook, you have a long way UP to go before you hit the roof. However I am not too sure about Dave's double decker coffee table.LOL. Mick B.

Correct me if I'm wrong but those look like blinds behind the boats, so Im gusessing there's a big window behind them

Yes they do look like blinds, so just think of the brilliant window display he would have. MickB.

What you could do is build a table with a shelf under it for the plane and you can store the boat on top.

LOL to all of you.  :} :} :}

OK...

It is a big window behind the blinds that overlooks next door's conservatory, with similar blinds, so he'd never see them.
I was thinking of going UP but the attic is already full of cr*p.
There are already a modeling table and a cofee table in the conservatory so I couldn't fit another one in, what with all the clothes drying racks that keep appearing in there.


So... I bought 2 new servos today and have started work on renovating the yacht. TBH there's not a great deal to do.
Refit the r/c and test it (done).
Cean off the dust, accumulated dirt and dinosaur snot.
Fit new stanchions and rails (courtesy of surplus from other kits)
Add a few bits of eye-candy.
Wait for a sunny day with not too much wind and GET DOWN THE LAKE!  :} :} :}

... and, yes, she is a wonderful woman but, as my passion (apart from model boats) is musical instruments and hers is as many foreign holidays as can be fitted into a 12-month period, I'm still the cheaper option.  :-))

Yeah, I was preparing for a run of 12-hour night shifts, so I usually do it by staying up until stupid o'clock then lie in until mid-day. (Sometimes it helps)

I'll start a thread about restoring my Northwind 36 yacht, I think. I doubt it will be as interesting as a complete build but you never know, it may help somebody somewhere.

Thank you. I was asked at the lake on Sunday whether Assurance was spray-painted. The funny thing is, only the hull below the waterline is sprayed, the rest is hand-painted and close up it looks like it as well. Call me Mr Blobby   ok2

Well, no new builds on the go as yet. I have to make a repair to Assurance, after the rudder post came loose, but I have been busy restoring my Northwind racing yacht, which is now good to go. Just waiting for some light airs.  {:-{
