This build is a display of first class workmanship all the way. It is one of the best builds we have had in awhile & I for one have really enjoyed it. Keep it up, I will be looking forward to your next build, you are heading in the right direction for a masters class award & at this rate it should not be too long before you achieve it, thank you for sharing.

  Cos water and wind don't scale.
 
  SY Medea model suffers from same problem, absolutely superb build but due to size, slight ripples on water produce a "Bobbing" effect.

Brian has joined our club, and brought Madonna over for a sail yesterday. She certainly drew many favourable comments from the other members :-))  The second photo, taken by Brian, is my Grand Banks cruiser attempting to push a disabled vessel to the shore while Madonna looks on. The rescue was successful.

Do you mind me asking what kind of paint your using I like how it goes on and the finish you get without having to use an airbrush.

The paint is just your basic oil base (out here from Bunnings or Masters) I put it on as quick as possible making sure to leave no brush strokes,I did have to give the white on the hull 2 coats as I did get caught with the humidity (at Cairns, N  Qld) I had to paint her about 5.30am before the it started to warm up......
