Did the finishing touches to the Lady today.  The rigging is complete along with scattering ropes all over the place.

Had a nice clean up of the bench and all ready for boat number 20.   %)

Wow !.   :embarrassed:

Thank you everyone. I enjoyed this build and I hope it shows. All together she took 3 months to build and the total costs came to 510. A very nice boat to sail and not as heavy as most of mine usually are.   :}

She is boat 19, and boat 20 is the Gry Maritha, a cargo ferry to the Scilly Isles.  She's been waiting in her box for 4 years, so it's time to get started.

I do not have all of my boats as I have sold off 5 of them  (at half price ?)  to make room in the workshop. Titanic has been shelved for a while and needs a lot more work done, but I was getting squinty eyes, working on the deck stuff.  (little people are only 3/8th's inch high!)

Thank you again for all your interest.  I'll be back.            (now who said that?)   ok2

cheers

Ken

Hi Kenny,

Just wanted to say I really enjoyed the build and she looks absolutely wonderful.
Also I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who uses coffee stirrers as building materials. I have a great supply of Costa and Starbucks ones, (the Costa ones are wider but more supple) and have put them to very good use for planking and small fabrication's.

The only two options are to either pocket a handful each time you go, or try and chat up the pretty girl behind the counter and secure a large bag of them ;) the second way is more fun, the things we'll do to keep building costs down eh? ;)

Anyway, keep up the good work and I look forward to reading your next build.

Thanks Alex.  Here's to wooden sticks.   :}     Yes, they do add to the effect as they are quite realistic when sanded smooth across their tops.  I shall be doing this again, methinks.

Cheers
