    Hi Doug, I have a sneaky suspicion you ain't German and I ain't American ? but I have more than once stated I have an exceptionally long ego, so I thank you for you nice comments I managed to get the loan of an Acetylene welder and now hopefully can weld my trailer frame together. I'll post pictures as I go along

    Hi David,
    "I'm David AKA Da Glider Guy. New on the block with an ego nine mile wide,"
    Don't worry Shipmate.
    This site is worldwide (24,901 x 24,860 miles) so we'll manage to fit you in somehowπŸ˜‰
    BTW: Hope you don't mind but I took the liberty to edit your long and interesting post, to break it up a bit and make it more easily readable.
    I DID NOT ALTER ANY OF YOUR ORIGINAL CONTENT!
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Hi Fudi, A hearty welcome to our Model Boat Nutters site😊
    "I did a long text added pics lost it gonna add pics again"
    Sorry about that FudiπŸ˜”
    It doesn't always happen, but one never knows when it will!
    Since it first happened to me I have taken the precaution of copying the text BEFORE I start to load the relevant pictures.
    To copy the text:_
    - Put the cursor at the end of the text,
    - Press CTRL+Shift+Pos1 all together to mark your text,
    - Press Ctrl+C to copy your marked text,
    - Click the '+' sign to start selecting and up loading your photos,
    - if when you click 'Done' and return to editing all your text has vanished-
    - Press Ctrl+V and your copied text will be be put back😊
    Learned the hard wayπŸ˜‰
    Afore I forget! A superb model and finish, my respects to you SahπŸ‘
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    I have lost a few long posts in the past and have no idea as to why. I now write all of my text in a Word document, copy and paste it onto the build blog update. All have worked well so far.

    Thanks for your prompt reply. That explains the chrome plating.

    I have tried several imitation chrome ideas that worked but never like the real thing. The $600 price is a little beyond my model boat budget.

    Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

    It was my profession I was a metal polisher and subcontracted within a plating shop so I had free range for the plating. My clients were owners of Concourse de Elegance cars they exhibited at Pebble Beach CA their demand was still is perfection on restoration. I ran a two man business for 8 years during that time I did my boat parts and as I believe I mentioned still have 31 pieces of polished brass to be plated + 100 screws the quotes I have range from $600 - $1200 I am retired on a fixed income so the $600 would be a stretch for me but may well do it. In the meanwhile I am building a 1/4 scale trailer just getting ready to weld the aluminum frame. I have spring steel for the double axle trailer leaves. I'll post a build log as I go.

    FYI there is a company that produces a chrome process name something like plug and plate for $39 for small like 1/10 1/8 scale it works but it will never look the same as my parts or any professional plater process, stands to reason $39 - $600 !

    You should post this in your Harbour with more information about her.

    If it looks right it probably is.
