Last 5% I reckon but thatís still a lot as you know the little things take time
Yes Iím very pleased with my apprenticeship  {-)  Quite amazed myself at the amount of scratch building. If I knew at the start what I know know sheíd be so much more accurate. Thereís a queue of potential buyers but no one is using enough zeros  {-) {-)  very unlikely to ever part with her so weíll see how long the woodwork stands the test of time. I should be finished before the second anniversary of the opening post.Iíll then be back to my lifeboat and try finish that through the summer


Thank you Mark  :-))

Mast lights now complete with rear shields on 5 lights. No help on colours forthcoming so it is what it is.
Looking forwards to the flags  :-)

Iíve concluded that the dslr camera is rubbish indoors compared to iPhone as it needs very much more light to focus sharp
Apologies for the somewhat off focus shots
iPhone Xsmax wins  :-))
Iíll do some outdoor pics when Iíve exhausted adding details

I can only find one outlet for these and similar fittings but my shopping cart comes to less than Ä25 but shipping is Ä28  {-)  must weigh next to nothing and fit an envelope
Anyone know a better option

Had a great day with a trip to the pictures and some work building new pontoons for Balne Moor (a work in progress)
First thing I was struck by the daylight on her this morning so thought it worthy to share
