If I had the time to spare mate I would weather it for u but I just haven't got the time at the moment still halfway through sorting babies room out and to make things even worse her work have only paid her 15 for the month they have deducted from her stat sick pay and stat maternity pay so it's going to be a very bad month hoping I can sell my 2 boats I got for sale  :((

Absolutely fantastic well done. Where did you learn to weather paint like that?

Also..... I am scratch building an early steam schooner and after seeing all the fittings on the puffer I wondered if they are available to buy separately?  By fittings I mean all the hooks shackles deadeyes and things like that. I have worked out that the scale of my boat to be 1/25 (4cm =1 metre) and anything that wont look too out of place size wise will be a big help. Thanks, and well done again!   U2

Cheers ian trouble is I don't no what to move on to next still thinking about a 1/24 ferry just time and money I'm lacking at the moment bud but I definitely want to build something else. Think when little lady has arrived I will get my head down and think of something unless I can sell my trawler and I will buy another kit possibly depending on what the boss says lol
