this is how Nord Icelandia looks at the moment, she now has a towed array unit on her aft deck, with winch located inside the aft hangar.  (access through the roof hatch).  the winch wire may need to have a foot or so lopped of it as she sometimes wraps around the servo head not the winch drum.

larry, the sub was practically impossible to retrive, so it got replaced, however all the wiring is still in place should I wish to rework it again.

Phil, she sailed this morning before the bird was put on her bow.  I also found that the fish needed reballancing, that was fun!  though it hangs tail down, she now sits level in the water.

I think some lighting always sets a model off, i am fitting some clear grain of wheat lamps over Fearless,s superstructure. 

What scale figures do you want, looks more 1/72 to me?

she's around 1/87th - 1/96th as her work boat on the port side is a sirmar unit, though railings are HO gauge

therefore 1/96th figures will be ideal, as long as they dont look too service navy as she's a civvy boat

Ghost,

If she is close to 1/87 (HO scale I would go that way for her figures, there are hundreds if not thousands of HO scale figures out the.
