Definitely nothing like the first pic!!  But all the better for it. The wheelhouse/superstructure you have built from scratch is really a quality looking piece of work Stan.  Hopefully I can get back into the workshop in the next couple of weeks once the new puppy requires less attention and the bite marks on my hand start to clear up!!  Getting up at 5 am each morning to answer the cries of 'wake up everyone I want to play'.  The older dog aint impressed!

Hope to be ready for the paint shop by the middle of March. I have had fun fitting the lights next job to fit the resistors and connect up the  L.E.D on the mast and cabin. Pictures to follow when this task is complete. Pictures taken today show  model with more detail fitted.
