    Howdy Ed,
    Yep, will do. Have taken some pics along the way.
    Mast lights and searchlight are working.
    Red/Green Nav lights fitted (had to spray the roof the right colour first - white not grey!) but not wired up yet. About to do that now.
    After that the two aft facing Towing lights and deck flood lights.

    Also discovered that there should be two deck lights P&S of the main cabinπŸ˜‰ Will need the miniscule chip LEDs for those - Now, where did I put my microscopeπŸ€“πŸ€”
    In fact while researching I found there's a whole list of 'bits' missing. Not least the Life Raft, which should be behind the wheelhouse!!😲
    (In God we trust - But just in case we want a Life Raft 😁)
    Have also started drafting new decals with the correct owner's logo and fonts.

    The wiring is only a lash up at the moment to check that everything works.
    As soon as I'm happy, with resistors an' all, I'll fit some mini connectors.
    More soon,
    (in a different thread cos this will bore the pants off Martin. A NO Lights Man!) That reminds me of a banner I once saw above the RAF Controllers at the London Air Traffic Control Centre.
    "RAF controllers do it in the dark" πŸ˜²πŸ˜‰
    The civil side was brightly lit, other side of the wall the RAF guys had minimal desk lighting only. Cheers, Doug 😎

    Evening Doug,

    Are you going to be blogging.
    Your LED conversion of the Southampton?
    That's one blog I'd like to read!
