After a long break the build is back on, having done more than my share of diy for  >>:-(SWMBO  <*< and also working on another ship build that is underway, I have a habit of switching between builds with not much being finished for a long while  :embarrassed:, It was after building props and running gear for myself and a mate (we are building the same ships jointly) he gave me the bad news that I had fixed the prop blades on in the wrong direction (this probably stemmed from my model aircraft days) :D upon looking at the props on the Fearless I had made the same mistake, this most likely explained the poor steering on the sea trials, a simple job to remove them and silver solder in the correct orientation this is something to check for when building any more props, I have done some work on the forward deck with 3d printed bollards and capstans and a removable antenna housing doubling up as a cover to hide the filler tube for the forward ballast tank, the next job is building the superstructure.
