    Good idea about the cheese sandwich. You will already know about my low opinion of Deans perhaps, and getting technical and other details wrong?
    Having said that, if you click the link, they do give a pretty good resume of the history of the MA/SB. http://deansmarine.co.uk/shop/product_info.php/cPath/10_14/p...

    Mine was not one of their kits but came as a grp hull and plastic deckhouse. Stuff like the masts, hatch covers and lockers were scratch built

    Thank you. In the end I used 'Lifecolor' acrylic paints, which although come in 22ml tinlets, go an awfully long way. You can also get a 'spray' like finish using a brush. I would highly recommend the brand.

    Well done that man. Lovely job Re paints I've not been in a LMS for some time now but I recall Humbrol did an approximately double the size pot of the "Tinlets" Are they still made? Also Valspar and Japlac did small tins. Guessing about a quarter or third of a pint.

    Ahoy there!
    "at the risk of a flogging round the fleet"
    Marginally better than a keelhauling I suppose๐Ÿ˜€

    "officer on the port side is carrying his mobile phone"
    Paint it yellowish white Steve an say it's his Cheese sandwich!๐Ÿ˜œ
    Why is Deans suddenly synonymous with mobile phones?
    What era was this boat anyway?
    Whenever I read of MAS boats I think of the Italian Navy in WW2!

    Thanks Doug. Pics of the internals attached, sorry about the wiring, but however neatly I try to get it , it always looks a mess.
    Sea trials report with video to follow.
    I see you still haven't finished that bratwurst?

    Looking forward to the Builder's Sea Trials report very much!

    Another finished project and I have been ordered, at the risk of a flogging round the fleet, not to start any more until the winter.
    The close up of the deck shows the planking painted in blue B15, thanks for the confirmation reilly4.
    You will see that the officer on the port side is carrying his mobile phone in his left hand. I assume that's what it is as the figure came from Deans.๐Ÿ˜œ

    Thanks for your advice gentlemen.
    I have finished the deck and it doesn't look too bad.
    Before painting, however, it will need careful preparation.
    Whilst searching the internet for help, I came across this tutorial which some of you may find helpful.
