OK Gents,
I was just concerned both Joe and I were covering the same subject matter, even though Joe and I are freinds, I was worried it was looking as I was posting the same items which Joe had already covered. However if you are finding the difference in the builds useful, then I will continue to post.


Thanks for your support.

Too right T888, It is like watching a really interesting program in stereo but with interesting differences to spot and learn from.

If Einstein and Stephen Hawking both turned up to a Royal Society presentation I doubt anyone would tell either to buzz off.

Your winch is excellent T888.

Hi Gents, update, I've  been working on the cable winch in front of the mail cable drum. I was lucky to be invited on board one of the Hunts in Portsmouth two weeks ago. During the visit I,d taken serval photos, which helped in getting the winch correct.
The winch is made up of over 200 parts and has taken 70 hrs so far, work I need to complete is the motor ,cable drum brakes and the roller.
