    That's a lovely build Dave, have bought quite a few of Deans kits, and never noticed this one, got to go on the list now.
    Regarding your problem with uploading a video, 'Fleet' Doug is the man you need, he will probably see
    this blog and reply,(I hope).🀞

    Cheers, Pete

    Have you got a picture of the finished boat.
    Is that a stand you have built or is it part of a kit. It looks very stable.

    Just looked up a picture of your build and it looks like quite a complex build, so Ill be following with interest.
    I'm please to see that I'm not the only one who has the resister chart permanently pinned to the wall for reference. The instructions look very well detailed as well, good luck with your build.

    The original is a nice looking ship, certainly showing the influence of deep sea trawlers. Should make a very nice model. Will watch your progress with interest. Very best of luck with her.

    Nice subject DaveπŸ‘
    Guernsey is apparently still alive and kicking with the Bangladesh navy as BNS Sangu. Seen in pic during exercises with the USN in the Bay of Bengal 2011.
    Happy building😊
    What scale is she?
    Cheers, Doug 😎
