Couldn't agree more with the last two comments. Will you be exhibiting it this year?

Thank you for your kind words gents! :embarrassed:

No Colin, I never exhibit my models as I have no real interest in that side of the hobby except as a great admirer other peoples skjills and builds!!
I only enjoy building and solving the problems created by my choosing odd scales or obscure boats.  8). I am not even very interested in sailing my models either as once I know that they do what I wanted them to do then I lose interest an look for new challenges.
Also the model doesn't belong to me, it has been build for the gentleman who bought the old Whitehills Lifeboat station and is converting it to be his new home.

Well done, Mike.

Really enjoying the build and now a video. Wow!

As was said by another, your eye for seeing a part for your builds in everyday things demonstrates a brain that moves on different lines than mine.

The way that video was put together was very clever. Even better was the choice of background music.
Excellent stuff!
