Hi
First sorry that I have not made myself known before, bad insight on me and thank you for the add.
O.K I have now left work and joined the ranks of the G.O.M. I have been modeling boat's (Sub's) for some time, mainly the WW2 "T" class, some time back I got Brian of Mobile Model Marine to let me have the first Lady "T" hull as I took a liking of the mock up that he had on his stand, and from that I have now moved onto tug's from the early 1900's.👍

My other love's other than my Wife are my Ducati 900ssie, and my SLK.😎

I am also a member of the Swiss Cottage MBC, and I do hope that in time I will meet up with some of you at the show.s

All the best

Fred

Oh, and Bryan; don't forget to Lower the Poop Deck while you're Splicing the Mainbrace 😁


Young at heart - slightly older in other places 😉 cheers Doug
