Chris


Youíre not offending anyone with your posts- Iím more than happy to click on the links to the pictures and Iím sure many others donít mind either. I know Martin is trying his best to help you post a picture directly without the links but if it doesnít work for you carry on as you are. Iíll be following you and know others will too.
Keep up the excellent work, and Iím looking forward to your next instalment  :-))

Hi Chris,
No one is upset, everyone is eminently enjoying this project..... it's a wonderful build and 48,500+ views testify to that.


Sorry if my post came across as a bit shouty, that was not my intention, (my pic was a bit bigger than intended and may look a bit forceful)... my apologies. 

All I was saying was, you doing everything right in uploading the photos to IMGBB, just scroll down 5 lines and it posts the picture, job done... 


'Martin, you going ion too much now, leave it!' Fair enough,  please continue posting updates Chris, we can't wait to see it finished. :-))

Beautiful work Chris. I've been following this build since I joined Model Boat Mayhem a few years ago. Looking forward to more installments of your progress and completion, with sea trials.


Cheers,
