So, is the delay because you blew the budget, or because you bought a boat?

It's a huge box and is in the back of the garage. She-who-must-be-obeyed doesn't seem to have noticed the box amomg all the other junk, so far.
I bought it from Plastic Pastimes in Poole and got it in an enormouse brown cardboard box with the Trumpeter box inside, so it's not apparent that it's a boat kit. Haven't even taken it out of the first box yet!!  Want to finish my Trumpeter 1:350 Hood first.

ah then by the time you get it out of the box, you will truthfully be able to say you have had it for years.
