Nicely finished Ken, I thought she had gone into hibernation just like my build has at the moment.

Thank you all for your kind comments.  :-)    The film took all day to make and I forgot to add some music.

I will sail her when the weather improves and also demo the crane's multiple actions on the water.  I had forgotten how heavy she was when I moved her outside for the final movie.   !!!   Did you like the M4 road traffic noise.  It's the other side of the fence  !   Always sounds worse in the winter because the trees are bare.

Cheers

Wonderful work. You deserve a medal for all those windows, never mind the rest of the build.  :-))

Hi Ken,

Congratulations on finishing Seabex
Beautiful ship, hope you have some help to launch her
not just because of the weight but also all the fiddly fittings and the crane..

Complete kit for 350.    %)    Not a bad price at the moment

Much more fun scratch building one though.   %%

Very true, my Alantis will be about a quarter of the complete kit price and yet double the fun to make with the added bonus of being able to say I built it ALL myself 8) .......
