    Well it's been a year since I last updated my blog whilst sat on the beach in Kos Greece. Just haven't had the time, but have of late and have actually nearly finished the refit.
    My last job that I have been putting off was one of those fiddly little finishing off jobs of the finer detail. Cleaning 5 layers of paint from the bulkhead lights taken from around the original superstructure.
    Started yesterday and got all twelve cleaned, then this morning consulted the plans for shape and positioning. I used .8mm piano wire and bent to shape. Then superglued the bulkhead lights in position. I then found a piece of red fine tube from the top of a "WD40" oil can and cut into 1mm pieces forming small "O" shapes, I then cut a piece out to make them into a "C", then clipped these into position to form what looked like small conduit fixing clips.
    Next to make was the 2 junction boxes, this time I used slightly larger tube about 2mm dia. and cut into 2 MM lengths,I notched the bottom to fit over the wire and glued in place. A 1 MM hole was drilled in the side facing downwards and added a short piece of wire glued in this hole to represent a take off feed to the lower lights.
    All in all, a job I was not looking forward to doing, turned out to be quite a rewarding little 5 hours spent. Hope you agree and maybe gives you some inspiration to finish those little "put off" jobs. Because having read a lot of the blogs on this brilliant site, has certainly given me the confidence and inspiration to do what I do now.
    Thanks everyone, here's to contented modelling and keep safe.

    Well considering you were not looking forward to that little "put off job" i think it came out extremely good and well worth the time spent in it.
    I also like the way you used the red tubing from the "WD40" can.
    When you look around it is surprising what you will find to use on model making.
    Well done.

    Martin555.

    That looks MUCH better Rogal๐Ÿ‘
    Those WD40 toobs also make great whip or rod antennas, e.g. the VHF IMM rods, ladder rungs, handrails, pipework ...
    Wondered where you'd got to.
    Thought maybe emigrated to Kos ๐Ÿ˜

    Glad you like the site๐Ÿ˜Š
    "having read a lot of the blogs on this brilliant site, has certainly given me the confidence and inspiration to do what I do now. "
    We've certainly achieved our objective with you.๐Ÿ˜Š
    Looking forward to your next build.
    NTM sea trials of 'Yorkshireman'!!
    Look after yourself (-selves).

    Never thought of that, maybe that is the future. Tractor beam eh! Sounds good to me. Name was just a play on letters. A few more photos from earlier in the refurb.
