As I said when I first saw this model Bryan, a superb example of one of my favourite types of model.  Beautifull and well deserved, I would have loved to have seen it in person.

I have to ask though, she appears to be under her own power in one photo but then seems to be completely devoid of a prop and a rudder in another!!  Am I seeing things?

Hello again. No. You are not seeing things. That particular photo was about 3 months before completion. You will also note that there are no bulwarks or winches fitted. Nor is the stern-frame...the ports (scuttles) are not fitted and the hull is yet to be painted. In fact, at this stage she had'nt even been tank tested!. But its done now, at least as far as I want to go as I am cracking on with another model. Bryan.
