    Mornin' Doug, Know what you mean, difficult to choose when you have more than one boat to build,
    my choice would be Manxman, but then again, I don't
    really like sub's, most of the things to look at, are underwaterπŸ˜†, I would love to buy the kit of HMS Manxman, but it's a very expensive kit at the moment, will keep an eye out for one on Ebay, if I'm lucky!😐

    Cheers, Peter

    HELP! What should I do?
    Well that is a very good question Fleet.
    I think you should do something that you consider will make a really good build log.
    Something that will inspire other model makers and get them motivated, (new to the hobby or old hand's.)
    Something that you could get lots of bits working, such as lighting, rotating gun, turning radar, maybe a bit of smoke.
    This has probably not helped you decide, but i am sure that other members will agree.

    Whatever you decide a nice build log will go down a treat.

    If it looks right it probably is.

    Mornin' Pete,
    ThanksπŸ‘ I'll be mailing Stephen re photos etc when I get my thoughts coherently together!
    Some tricky coding / algorithm changes will be needed, and we shouldn't forget that Stephen is still a member of the working society!

    RE "when are you going to start on HMS Manxman?"
    My problem is that I'm torn between HMS Manxman, a very complex construction, and my AKULA 2 Submarine!
    At least the AKULA hull is almost complete, only conning tower detail & scopes to do) and the rest is 'just' πŸ™„ fitting out; dive tank & electronics etc.
    I've also temporarily shelved the restorations / conversions of my fish cutter and a PT Boat. Diverse interests πŸ˜‰
    HELP! What should I do? I really like Manxman as well, since I built the Airfix 1:600 kit as a kid. I read up on her history and became fascinated.
    Her build will really take time to be able to do her justice.
    I heartily agree 'Iconic'. I've seen her described as 'The last ship the RN had that LOOKED like a warship'. She survived until 1972 in various guises!
    Coincidentally the same year as my other RN favourite H class Destroyer HMS Hotspur, also inspired by the ancient (like me!) Airfix kit and reading her history.
    Inspired me to scale up the 1:600 kit and scratch build a 1:72 version when I was about fifteen.
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    You make a good point Doug, totally agree with you,
    Now! when are you going to start on HMS Manxman?
    looking forward to the build blog, of such an iconic ship.😐


    Cheers, Pete

    Wish it did to me Rooky ☹️
    Seems to me few of us use Media Gallery and the most useful photos and vids are in the Build Blogs and Harbour. This has affected me as well. I have posted dozens of pics and vids of my experiments and restorations - but in my Build Blogs mostly - so I get no credit for them even though they caused me the most trouble, time and effort to create download to PC and upload to the site. Not that credit bothers me much - after Fleet Admiral the only way is DOWN! πŸ€” But I can fully understand that others are disgruntled and begin to wonder why they make the effort to create and maintain a Build Blog.
    I can also understand Stephen coding to ignore photos in the general Forum though.
    Cos too many irrelevant (to model boats) photos appear there.
    Vintage cars an' Lord knows what!!
    Good luck with your projects PeteπŸ‘ Keep us up to date πŸ˜‰
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Hi Pete,
    "Apologies if I am sounding stupid Stephen, but cannot find this 'Media gallery',"
    ...
    "Hi Stephen, am still waiting for a reply from you, regarding the last post 11 days ago."

    Most probably you are still waiting cos Stephen's ghast is absolutely flabbered at your query!
    Look on the left hand side of any page on the site and you will see 'Media Gallery' between 'Build Blogs' and 'Boat Clubs & Lakes'.
    Apropos 'sounding stupid' I reserve judgement and bow to the majority vote!
    ORDER, ORDER! DIVISION CLEAR THE LOBBY. AYES TO THE RIGHT NOES TO THE LEFT πŸ˜‰

    BTW: I also think that the current points for photos & vids is a bit weird and does not reflect the time and trouble that many of us take to illustrate our Build Blogs and answers to How To questions. Will mail Stephen on this when I have time.
    Cheers, 😎

    Apologies if I am sounding stupid Stephen, but cannot find this 'Media gallery', if you could re-word on the rank table, it may trigger a brain cell!

    So in summary;

    Photos only counts the posts in the media gallery section which include photos
    Videos only counts the posts in the media gallery section which include videos

    I can re-word this on the rank table if it is causing confusion.

    Stephen
