  Hi DD to be honest that is my problem, I don't know which one it is or what kit it was built from????   I have just bought the boat from a person who knew nothing about it and I would like to give it some TLC it is well made but some of the bits and pieces do not seem right to the eye, for instance the funnel is quite large in diameter and more like something off the Titanic, (same colour as well) but the overall impression is of the earlier one but with more up to later era fittings.   Sorry I cannot put photo up at the moment thanks to BT cack handed left hand not knowing right hand, but looking at the two photos it would seem it is neither of them at the moment.    Harry

It is an extremely large funnel, isn't it ?

Anyone know why it should be that large ?

 Hi DD thanks a lot, the photos have cleared up a lot of my doubts and now I can see that it is right with regards the funnel.   Although it does still not explain why the ruddy thing should be so LARGE at least it shows me where I need to spruce up the model, I am extremely grateful to you DD .   Harry ::)
