A really interesting build this Ian - watching closely.  Just out of interest, why 2?  Thought doing 1 would be tough enough!
                                    Regards, Tony.


one for me ( training on my first build ) and the second one is the master moddelers who is building the same type with a different name along side me ! and when i say every thing is scratch built i mean everything .... obviously exept motors and all the electrics !!

 Wow, are they fitting kids with those nowadays? Can the switch be retro-fitted? :D

Hi Ian,
The build is progressing well.
Is that a model of one of the old Conservancy Board Vessels in the background?


The green hulled one I mean. I cant remember what she was called.
