Looked great Martin, I like the style of the Pegasus III - out of interest why couldn't you finish her?

Nothing fitted very well, some parts were too thin after moulding, plans were wrong in places, huge problem with the paints, railings, dingy, superstructure / deck seating, fitting the compound curved windows, poor 'cut lines', terrible instructions, etc. etc. etc.

I said to Bradders at the time, 'It's like Graupner made ever part as difficult to assemble as possible!'
Many parts would have taken far less time to build from scratch!
