If we put Tiger and Roosevelt on the water together at night I think we would generate enough light to light up the pond  :-)) :-))

HAHA dave yes i reckon we would {-) %) an ive not finished yet by a long shot as want to light up tiger with floodlighting like my norfolk so still got over 100 leds to fit in the right places to flood light all the S/S an if she is goin in harms way  then a simple flick of the switch an she will be all blacked out but ive flood iit all my ships an when night sailing its as you say Dave the pond gets lit up an the ship looks real as i somtimes night sail up at sheringham pond in norfolk an the holliday makers love it an some nights its a job to try an pack up as they keep comin up an askin to see my norfolk sail all lit up an boy   talk about the camera phones all come out an some of them get their phones right down to the water level an theyve shown me afterwards that norfolk looks nr real an they get very pleased an askin questions well then it a really nice eveing

HI Bob cheers for the pic but its different to my plan pics as in your pic there are two W/T doors an on my plans only one W/T door an the lights on my plan
 in a different location so all i can think as this ship was such a long time building in real that the builders altered it all around an i gone by my plans but thank you all the same
