Very nicely done.  I'll keep this in mind for when I get round to my Fairmile!

Well done on the stanchions and the rest of the build as well. I will definitely use your drill jig idea when I need to make the stanchions for my "B".

I looked, but I can't seem to find if you mentioned what scale this build is.

Cheers

Looking at the figures in the second image on page one, I would say she is 1:48th or 1:35th/32nd. This is good for donor figures from the plastic manufacturers like Tamiya or Airfix that can be modified and re uniformed for naval service.

G/day Tom,

Yes it is the shapeways gun but I only used the barrel and magazine.
You need to take care when building.

Thank You Graham. I understand that some of the printed pieces can be quite brittle and easily broken.
