    Hi Colin, sorry to hear that you have not been able to get on with things recently. Very understandable, we all know you have a lot to worry about at the moment. However, you are making some progress on your boat which is better than nothing and at least it gives you something else to think about. The pictures look good and you are obviously getting on well. Hope you are keeping as well as possible, love and best wishes to Caroline.

    All the best, Nerys

    When the winds before the rain, soon you may make sail again, but when the rain's before the wind, tops'l sheets and halyards mind

    Good evening all, I've been unable to model for a while for various reasons, but have made a little progress the last few days.
    The hull has been sealed, filled and sanded, and then sealed again with Ezekote, now on to the glass cloth application with Ezekote.
    Leaving overnight to harden off before trimming and giving another 2 coats of Ezekote.
    App not letting me upload pictures again, will try with laptop tomorrow.
    Cheers for now Colin.

    Good evening all, just a quick update for those of you following this subject.
    Somehow my posts went into wrong section of the forum, probably my fault, so if you want to check on previous posts about this build here is a link to it :-

    https://model-boats.com/forum/79989

    This will take you back to the original thread.
    Sorry for any inconveniance, probably dementia taking hold.
    Cheers Colin.

    Hi Colin
    You can see some pictures on the link and also some original photos. The plan supplied is only a sideview and top view it is in the instructions that you pick it up and the kit comes with 4 portholes.πŸ‘πŸ‘
