Didn't know you were into cloning Graham 😉
Know the feeling, my workshop is also overflowing so Graf Spee now resides on a glass shelf above the dining table and the PTB in the bookshelf 😁
BTW: the fishing boat I inherited from my aunt, and thought was from Kent cos we all hail from East Kent, most of us from Folkestone (my H class destroyer HMS Hotspur absolved her Sea Trials on Radnor Park pond around 1966) turned out to be a Billings kit of a Danish fish cutter based in Ebsjerg Denmark! No idea how Aunty got hold of it😉
Good luck with fleabay👍 Cheers,Doug 😎

Hot tub trial - Posted: 25th May 2018
So everything is finished (maybe a little more detail but trying to stay away from the rust!!)
First check in the hot tub and I’m pleased

Deck - Posted: 13th May 2018
I’ve fitted the deck and painted. I have also painted the internal shelves for the electrics and added my name and build details to one of the deck beams! The deck is not glued down yet. I have used plastic board and painted with a tile paint to seal.

New winch - Posted: 29th Apr 2018
I was intending to use a winch from a previous model however I had a spare couple of hours and it was raining so I made a new one! Will add the warps which will hide the bright drums so no need to rust!!

Thanks! I was very lucky to be “allowed” the time!

Ballast - Posted: 27th Apr 2018
So I’ve just tested the hulk in the water and she is sitting pretty! I filled the keel with cement which has brought her down to the water line. Tested the electrics too and she moves nicely... once the cement has dried I will give the hull a seal of paint on the inside and then it’s deck on time!

Quick mock up! - Posted: 22nd Apr 2018
Got the main deck beams fitted today and the servo holder. Offered up the wheelhouse and gantry which have been made during the winter to see how they look!
Pretty happy with so far!
