done more to the stack, finished the planking of the main body section, then used some sand & fill, then used some elbow grease for a good sand, next is to plank the inside of top section & then make a start on bottom section :)

Ive bought quite a lot of items for modelling from EU over the years as it was cheaper than UK, all depends what it is your buying, there is a place in germany I shopped at often that was good prices & also shipping was faster/cheaper than some places i've bought from in UK! :)

...pfff, almost spat my dinner out when I saw that tonight, we need to chat about that LoL.  I need your supplier details!  I had high hopes ordering from nederlands recently, received my order (eventually) and they just "bent" the longer stuff to fit in the package rather than using proper packaging.  It was just a "naff" order.  Hmm.
Funnel looks great by the way.  Lots of sanding and banding coming up!

ouch!
The retailer i used for my largescale RC buggy was hobbythek, brilliant service for many years, ive not actually ordered anything yet for my model boat from EU as i have managed to find what i need so far in UK at reasonable prices :)
As for the stack, ive decided to re-make it!!
the diamater is a fraction too large by around 5mm and looks odd when its on the boat :( ..most wouldnt notice it probably, but i will! lol ...so making a new one this weekend :)
